A good name is better than precious ointment; and the day of death than the day of one's birth.
Wherein ye greatly rejoice, THOUGH NOW FOR A SEASON, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations; that the trial of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honor and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ.
No matter the roads we take, life is, and will always be, full of hardships, troubles, tests, deaths, untruthful gossip, etc. These occur, temporarily and are just to 'try' our willingness to carry on. God instructs us to keep moving forward. He, also, provides us with the necessary help, as long as we display the desire to 'keep moving.' If we consistently 'move forward,' we will become less 'troubled' by these hardships. They will still be painful, but yet, easier to bare. So, by the time of our death, we will be able to bare far more than we could at our birth. Yet, if we don't 'keep moving,' our death will not be very different from our birth. It is a given fact that we will meet disappointment many times in our lives. No matter how many disappointment that we face, we must never lose hope. Unlearn.
