Aren’t we all looking to make life easier? The latest Powerball lottery made me think that way. How much easier life would be if I had that $380 million dollars? Sure, I would give some to needy ministries and charities. I would give some back to the taxman. But what I could do with the rest! No need to work, no worries about paying for college, no insecurities about retirement. I could read, I could play, I could explore.
That in turn got me thinking about whether Christ had ever experienced anything really that easy. I couldn’t think of a single thing.
