A Good Reason To Suffer

suffering purpose

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
