Suffering


"How unfinished and rebellious and proud and unconcerned we would be without
suffering!


-Chuck Swindoll

I'll be writing more on the subject of being judgmental as soon as I wrap my mind, heart, and intentions around some things.

That is such a good quote and so true, but it's hard to watch our kids suffer and struggle. I wonder if God feels the same about us, or because He can see it all does it ease some of the hurt in watching us suffer and struggle? But no, I know how he feels about us and He must hurt just like parents hurt when their kids are going through a rough time.

Thanks for the thought-provoking quote.

It's a tough subject, especially when it's within the body of Christ. I look forward to seeing you tackle it, though. I think you'll bring a lot to it. I may have to e-mail you...

I am looking forward to it... I saw a quote yesterday (after you posted your other) and it said "who would dare tell YHVH to judge them as they judged others"! WOW. O.o

That is a GREAT quote! Suffering is so difficult for all of us to understand at one point or another. I look forward to your post to come!
