regarding the following paragraph ...
And here is the actuality of Easter that might go overlooked: “Yes, it may feel like carrying a cross, and you could say “carrying a cross” is a struggle. In other words, carrying the weight of your brother’s ‘half-empty-glass-perspective’ in order to be that which facilitates the transition to the half-full perspective, even though progress isn’t actually made, is a worthy task, and it CAN be done without complaint and without suffering, unless you think you ought to be able to have the reward before you do anything.
as i'm having difficulty catching the meaning of the last sentence there ...
[[and it CAN be done without complaint and without suffering, unless you think you ought to be able to have the reward before you do anything.]]
... wondering if someone can offer an example of what 'a reward BEFORE doing it means or might look like' ... anyone? ((thanks))
