Suffering: Stumbling Block or Stepping Stone
It's not a question of if we will suffer here on earth. It is more of a question of when we will suffer. We can either allow our suffering to be a stumbling block or a stepping stone. We need to understand that God is not to be blamed for our suffering. We must learn from suffering and prepare for it. We must not allow ANY suffering to cause us to stumble but use it to better our service to God.
