Default Purposeful Suffering

Neal A. Maxwell once shared what he had learned of purposeful suffering in these words:
“Certain forms of suffering, endured well, can actually be ennobling. …
“… Part of enduring well consists of being meek enough, amid our suffering, to learn from our relevant experiences. Rather than simply passing through these things, they must pass through us … in ways which sanctify [us].”

I think, if we believe we are here for a purpose, we will find meaning until the end. I agree that we must humble ourselves and put aside our pride to gain anything from suffering.

That's a beautiful picture.
