Two verses stood out to me in this chapter.
verse 11: "For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things. If not so, ... righteousness could not be brought to pass"
It reminds me that there is a purpose to all the roadblocks that we encounter in life. We have to encounter the roadblocks and overcome them in order to progress and become better and more righteous.
verse 25: Adam fell that men might be; and men are, that they might have joy.
Men are that they might have joy... what a great thing! We are here to learn and progress and to be happy! We may be working to overcome roadblocks in our life, we may be trying to constantly get better, but we should also be trying to be happy. Men are that they might have joy... we are meant to be happy!
