Character Before Comfort

“God had one son on earth without sin, but never one without suffering.”  -Saint Augustine

We question God’s goodness when people closest to us pass away.  We wonder why God allows us to face financial difficulties, slander behind our backs, and “friends” to betray us.  Don’t turn your back on God at the first sign of trouble.  Know that God is less concerned with our comfort as He is with our character.  Stay faithful and keep moving forward.   

we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.  -Romans 5:3-4 (NIV)
