The School of Pain
Everyone has sorrow. Being a Christian does not exempt anyone from grief. But faith in Christ brings a transformation of sorrow. Not only are we taught to endure the sorrows that come to us patiently and submissively–but we are assured that there is a blessing in them for us, if we accept them with love and trust.
One of the deepest truths taught in the Bible–is that earthly sorrow has a mission in the sanctifying of life.
