There are ‘reasons’

why we suffer.

The Bible gives plenty (evil, our sin, the devil, the broken world that we live in, our lack of faith, that the glory of God might be displayed…)  It’s no bad thing to be abreast of these.

It’s just important to remember that the job of assigning this particular reason, to that particular person’s, particular case of suffering… is way above our pay grade.

So again, today, disciple: show up and shut up, weep with those who weep, and jump in and serve in the midst of unanswered questions.
