We wait for a better day. Living unselfishly, that is, for the Lord or neighbors, demands tedium or suffering, and so that better day seems inviting. There’s the adventure of it all. Going out of your way to show a teen-ager that sharing his cannabis with a classmate not only doesn’t do the classmate a favor, but may affect him badly for the rest of his life, puts you in an awkward position, and makes everybody feel bad. But a bad position to gain life everlasting (that’s what you’re giving the kid) is a bargain.
If you’re a kid among equals, that makes you unpopular. And they know how to rub it in. What’s another cold day in winter? The winter of life? You’ll be moving on to another class or another job soon.
