Pain has a purpose
Suffering helps us develop godly qualities. It makes us more compassionate. It helps us to see how we can reach out to others. It teaches us patience, long-suffering and reliance on God. It tests our faith. Like the refiner’s fire spoken of in the Bible, suffering removes the impurities of the soul.
