Understanding Sufferings

BENEFITS OF SUFFERING

At times, it is hard for us, who have existed in our comfort zones for so long, to fully realize the value of suffering to our spirituality. The tendency is to stay where we are and increase the level of comfort, so that we can enjoy life to the full. It is very difficult to imagine anyone in that position wanting any part with suffering. In most cases, the need to delve truthfully into our spiritual existence ends up being eclipsed by the hurly-burly of everyday, material life. The strong sense of pursuing God slowly disintegrates because we do not fully understand the good of exercising godliness.

For this reason, we find it particularly tough to comprehend suffering when it does occur. However, we need to remember that the grace of God fills every aspect of our lives, whether in times of prosperity or adversity. Moreover, we have received the Holy Spirit to help us understand why we suffer—“that we might know the things that have been freely given to us by God” (1 Cor 2:12). Sometimes it takes suffering to achieve what we could not have done by our own will; suffering ushers us into an understanding that puts our spiritual growth above everything else.
