God allows us to suffer to build our character. It’s our character that builds our testimony. It’s our testimony that builds our witness. It’s our witness that inspires!
If you don’t believe that, allow the Soul Surfer Bethany Hamilton to prove inspire you! The Bible promises Christians will suffer and some may even die, and we ask why.
“Good people pass away; the godly often die before their time. But no one seems to care or wonder why. No one seems to understand that God is protecting them from the evil to come” (Isaiah 57:1, NLT).
