Wednesday's Words of Wisdom...Iain DuGuid on Suffering

"This world is a place where we are constantly being called to exercise faith and trust in God’s promise in the face of the evidence of our senses. Your sufferings are not a sign that God is out to get you. Your sufferings are not even a test to see if you can have faith like Abram’s. No, your sufferings are the path of discipleship that God has chosen and designed for you. Suffering is the furnace in which God will refine your faith and will grow your ability to trust in him as you find him faithful to his promises yet again."
