BOM: As Roman Emperor Marcus Aurelius puts it, “The impediment to action advances action. What stands in the way becomes the way.” Knowing the wall you have to climb can push you to find a way over it. In the end, you will be a better man. Thus, be thankful for your trials in the gifts they deliver. Philippians 4:13.
