How an obstacle can provide growth

We all have crosses in life, whether it’s a small inconvenience but sometimes those little things are the ones that get under our skin. Sometimes those little things can seem like mountains. But the cross can also be a gift if we flip it in our minds. Rather, let’s see it as an opportunity God’s giving us to grow in grace, to grow in patience, to grow in compassion, grow in charity. After all, the cross is a part of life. Let’s use it to our advantage to grow rather than to allow it to be something that weighs us down.
