                                         Why Do People Suffer?

                                             By Ben Bailey

Look around and you will see that we live in a world plagued by
suffering.  The amount of people dying with such dreaded diseases as
cancer, and AIDS is at an epidemic high.

Many people around the world are literally starving to death right now.  
Others are in the midst of emotional and psychological turmoil and suffering. 
As we see the suffering that occurs in our world, we are naturally made to ask the
question, “WHY?”.  Why does human suffering occur?  Let us consider
a major reason for human suffering. 

One biblical reason for suffering is it helps us to realize this world that
we live in is not our eternal home but is merely a temporary
probationary period for eternity.  The Apostle Paul reminded us of the
value of suffering in 2 Cor. 4:17-18.  “For our light affliction, which is
but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and eternal
weight of glory, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but
at the things which are not seen. For the things which are seen are
temporary, but the things which are not seen are eternal.” 

Oh, how we need to let our problems focus our attention on the real issues of life,
like eternity. The Bible also teaches us that Heaven will be well worth any sufferings
we might incur on this life.  Paul said, “For I consider that the sufferings of this present
 time are not worthy to be compared to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed 
in us” (Rom 8:18). 

When life seems harsh and unkind and someone you love passes from
this life all too soon, remember this old sinful world is not what life is
about.  Real life is about living with God in eternity (John 14:1-6).  As
Peter said, “…the heavens will be dissolved being on fire and the
elements will melt with fervent heat…Nevertheless we, according to
His promise, look for new heavens and new earth in which
righteousness dwells (2 Pet. 3:12-13).  

May God help each of us to turn from our problems and look to Heaven itself (Col. 3:1-4).
