HARD WORK IS WORTH IT

The story is told of a nursery worker about to plant a number of young saplings, some straight and some crooked, thus reasoned with himself – "These straight saplings will no doubt grow up to be fine trees without much attention on my part; but I will see if, by proper training, I cannot make something of the crooked ones also. There will be more trouble with them, no doubt, than with the others; but for that very reason I shall be the better satisfied should I succeed."

(From a sermon by Chris Surber, "The Pilgrim’s Path 5 The Merciful" 1/29/2009)
