Suffering is a topic of the Christian life that I have the most difficulty with. Can you imagine that? Yet the Lord gave me this insight that I felt that I must blog. Maybe I heard it somewhere and don’t remember.

We really ought to learn to bear suffering well in this life. Here is one practical reason. For most of us, our death will likely involve suffering. If we have suffered well in this life, it will greatly reduce the chances that we will curse God on our deathbed in our suffering. Instead, we will offer our suffering to God as we are in the habit of doing and possibly even avoid Purgatory.
