the cross we bear

The cross we bear precedes the crown we wear. To be a Christian one must take up his cross, with all of its difficulties and agonizing tension-packed content and carry it until that very cross leaves its marks upon us and redeems us to that more excellent way which comes only through suffering.

Martin Luther King, Jr.
