Suffering Not Worth Comparing
Pain and suffering are part of living on this planet, but many days are hard. Heavenly Father, there is suffering that we bring on ourselves, that is unnecessary and not of your doing. Forgive us for our sins and our foolishness. But there is also suffering that we must experience as Christians in a sinful and difficult world, and there are many who suffer tremendously for the sake of the Gospel. Father, help us to put our suffering in context like the Apostle Paul did when he wrote, I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us. Help us to comprehend that Lord. Sustain us and let us have an attitude of thankfulness and of looking forward to the day when we will be with you in Heaven.
