is life in community hard work?

"God's mercy is the springboard to life in community. It is by keeping it in view that our shared life will thrive. A failure to keep God's mercy in view will mean our shared life will be something to be endured rather than enjoyed. If life in community does feel like hard work it is probably  because you have lost sight of God's mercy. Without God's mercy, life in community will feel like a goal to achieve. Because of God's mercy, life in community is a gift for you to enjoy."
