So often we deceive ourselves into thinking that the way of the sinner is easy. After all, we know that the way of the disciple is hard (although sometimes we deceive ourselves here as well), and in contrast with the requirement of all that we have, are, and can be in order to walk the path of the disciple, the path of the sinner looks comparatively easy.
That is an illusion, however. Despite the requirement of our all to be a disciple, the path of the sinner is harder still. It is harder because of the misery we bring down on ourselves and others, and it is harder because we are not yoked with the Savior who is capable of pulling our burdens that we cannot lift ourselves.
