Suffering is part of life for both for Christians and non-Christians. But God makes His children a promise: if we approach our trials, disappointments, and pain with faith, God will do the essential work of molding us into the likeness of Christ Jesus.
The question is not if trials will come, but what will we do as we experience them. Many times we are tempted to feel that God isn’t fair because He allowed the pain to come into our lives. We curse the suffering and try to get out of it as quickly as we can. While these reactions are understandable, there is a far more productive way to approach our problem of suffering. That better way is to view trials through the lens of the Gospel.
Scripture: James 1:1-5
