Since I wrote about suffering the other day and I know what a popular topic it really is, I thought I might offer a good reason why God uses suffering for His eternal purposes.
Since the summary of the Ten Commandments is to love God and love people then we should find great encouragement here.
Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort which we ourselves are comforted by God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Let’s see if we can follow this.
God comforts us in our affliction.
The purpose of this comfort is so that we can comfort others in their affliction.
God provides an example in the way He comforted us.
