How To View Suffering

Everyone suffers. No matter how rich or how spiritual they might be. It’s inescapable. But extreme suffering is something we can and should do something about. We can do something to help those who suffer more than we do. Especially those who can’t help themselves.

We shouldn’t assume that suffering, even our own suffering, can be completely eliminated. We need some suffering. We need some challenges. It helps us appreciate life more. It brings us closer together, and it brings us closer to God.
