Everyone will be happy when they work hard. I remember many times when I have worked hard and been satisfied; however, one experience stands out to me. It was when I signed myself up for the Law Enforcement Explorers Program here in Milwaukee. It truly challenged me and sticks with me as a formative experience. Today’s readings, especially Isaiah 65, call to mind that opportunity.
The prophet Isaiah seems to be communicating the same message: in order to be happy, we all must do things that are difficult. “There shall always be rejoicing and happiness in what I create,” in what I fight for. This is true because of how hard work can produce feelings of great satisfaction. That which does not come easily can be savored all the more. What we must do as young men and women is to work hard always for our life’s priorities.
What makes you happy? What are you willing to fight for? What is worthy of your blood, sweat, and tears?
