Devotional Service – Goal Oriented

“Sometimes the Lord tests His devotees by offering different alternatives. One has to be prepared for the worst because Krishna may test one in different ways. The devotees should be very clear. Devotional service is goal oriented. Devotees are working towards the goal of pure devotional service and they are not interested in anything short of that.”
