Why would anyone go to a gym and lift heavy weights? Why would they want to get tired and sweaty and even feel sore the next day? We understand that in order to build our physical muscles, we need to go through some effort and pain. We have come to earth to build our spiritual muscles, yet we believe that if we are given spiritual weights to carry, we have somehow displeased God. If you wanted your children to get in shape, would you go to their gym and take the weights out of their hands? How often do we want to take their emotional and spiritual weights from them? And, want our Heavenly Father to take the weights from us?
