Hebrews 12:4-7, 11-15; Psalm: 103; Mark 6:1-6

Suffering teaches endurance

Suffering is part of life. While we do not welcome suffering, it can strengthen our resolve to persevere in faith and goodness. After all, Jesus too experienced suffering. He experienced rejection but did not stop preaching the Good News. We, too, are called to persevere in our witness despite moments of suffering and rejection. We are to hold up our limp arms, steady our trembling knees and smooth out the path we tread, then, the injured limb will not be wrenched. It will grow strong again.
