Questions to Consider

2. How does our society view suffering: as a blessing or a curse?

Instead of drawing him further from God, suffering drew Paul closer because he could more connect with Jesus and the suffering He went through.
1. Has your understanding of suffering changed over time? How?
2. Think of a difficult experience you've been through. How did God grow you through that time?

God gives us comfort, not to make us comfortable but to make us comforters.

2. How could He use you to provide that comfort?

Making it Real
