"I have learned in whatever state I am, to be content." -Philippineas 4:11
Reference: Daily Bread, BE COACHABLE!
God's work in us isn't over when we receive Christ ---- it has just begun.
God is teaching us to be teachable. We may never understand sometimes why we need to pass tough times/hardships, we may see it us "pasakit" or "pahirap" but through this we gain intelligence and wisdom. And in this situation, we shine! Paul is right, it may not seem to be pleasant but it is rewarding. The more teachable we are, the more mature we will become.
