Listen...to the words of the Scripture, and in them discover God's message for you today.
Look...at a brief verbal snapshot from the scrapbook of contemporary life and discover its connection both to you and to the Scripture passage.
Live...inside the Scripture to discover its context and message; then allow the Scripture to come alive in you and cause you to live out your faith in new and more-effective ways.
Read an excerpt from this study below.
I am one of those people who have been blessed with a lifetime of good health. I have had an occasional sick day, but nothing that has caused me ongoing problems.
I wish the same were true for my wife. She was in an auto accident when she was eighteen. From that day to this, she has not known a day without physical pain. Various treatments and surgeries have sometimes helped ease the pain, but never has she been free from pain. Even so, she has borne three children, worked as a nurse, and participated in church mission projects overseas. She has never asked to be pitied.
Living with her, I have learned that suffering by itself does not make us better persons. In fact, it can crush our spirits; no one should ever seek suffering. Yet, suffering can also be used by God. My wife is much quicker than I am to notice when others are suffering and to respond to them with sympathy and encouragement.
