Suffering Is Good

Jonah was told by the Lord in the Bible book of Jonah to preach in Nineveh.  He refused because these people were his enemies and he wanted them destroyed, not saved.

God did not accept Jonah's response and sent a giant fish to swallow him.  After these very confined quarters, Jonah accepted the assignment and was let out to reluctantly complete his task.

All people, at times, need a shove in the right direction to do good.  If humans did not have a Loving Parent to discipline His children, then spiritual growth would be impossible.

Thank God for the many trials and tribulations everyone gets to experience for the opportunity of spiritual growth.  Without suffering, humanity would be lost.
