We are not suggesting you look for extra suffering!
It is simply that suffering is one of the most powerful things God can use for our growth. You might have noticed that some of the most gracious people are the people who have suffered the most. It doesn’t always work out that way but it can.
You don’t need to seek suffering. There is enough of that already. But if you are suffering (or you know someone who is) consider what God might be doing in the midst of that.
