Paul said about Timothy that he had a proven character. Choosing the difficult path will bring proven character. 1 Peter 1:6,7: In this you greatly rejoice, even though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been distressed by various trials, so that the proof of your faith, being more precious than gold which is perishable, even though tested by fire, may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. Faith should be tested and character proven.

So your enemies will cringe before you, And you will tread upon their high places.”
