“If God really loves me, he wouldn’t make me suffer.” First of all, God doesn’t make you suffer. Because of sin, suffering happens in the world, and God allows it. Some people also think that we will get punished for sinning, but that is also not true. Sometimes when we suffer, it is not a direct result of our sins, just sin in general. An example of this would be Jesus dying on the cross. He did nothing to deserve it, but he had to because of sin in general.One of the passages that gives me a lot of comfort is John 13:7. “Jesus replied, ‘You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.’” For me, this means that when I’m going through tough times, God knows what he is doing, and he is doing it for the best. I have seen this passage come up over and over in my life. Every time, after the tough times have passed, I do understand why it happened to me. It’s crazy for me to think how things in the bible still apply to everyday life thousands of years after it was written.
