We have longed asked the question, why bad things happen to good people. Even as Christians, it’s hard to make sense of life when we, or people we love, are struggling, ill, or hurt.
As St. Paul tells the Hebrews though, our living example from Christ is that he learned from what he suffered. The only way for us to begin to understand the hardest things in life is to pray for God to reveal how they serve the greater purpose of His plan. Especially if they are situations we cannot change.
As sad as it is, Jesus Christ had to die, there was no other way to fulfill the Father’s plan for Him… it was HIS purpose.
All of us must unite our suffering with Christ to be who God created us to be, no matter how hard the tragedies and setbacks of this life are to accept.
