Pain--100 Words


Does anyone like pain?

I know people who enjoy inflicting pain. Satan relishes our pain.

But, do you like experiencing pain?

I doubt it. It seems we are wired more for joy than pain. Peace vs. uncertainty. Known vs. unknown.

An anonymous writer said, “Pain is inevitable. Suffering is optional.” That seems to be true. Others may inflict pain on me, they can’t cause me to suffer.

Jesus experienced pain on the cross. But, the victory was His in the end, “Father into Your hands…”

That’s our choice as well—giving our pains to God rather than keeping them.
