In this presentation, we review the relationship between grace, embracing suffering, humility, and love covered in our last presentation. We then discussed how we do not suffer as an end but as a means. We suffer in love:
- For the salvation of others
- To ease Jesus’ suffering
- To bring joy to God
- For our own good and the good of others
We mentioned how, if that seems strange, we are likely thinking as humans and not as God. Finally, we examined how and why suffering dramatically increases our growth in grace.
