lots of suffering all over

There is a lot of suffering in this world, always has been…

I heard a teacher say that Westerners in general and Americans in particular are both averse to and work hard to avoid suffering. Huh. That resonates with me.

A long time ago God gave some insight:

In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials, so that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ. (‭1 Peter‬ ‭1‬:‭6-7‬ ESV)
