Often so many of us have tunnel vision when it comes to present suffering. We only see what’s happening today. We think if God loves us, we should be spared from suffering, or at least it should be kept to a minimum, but suffering should not cause us to despair, it should compel us to have hope because of what we know God is accomplishing through our suffering, and that he has not left us alone in the midst of our suffering.

But is that true? What is the standard God is looking for? Is it just being better? Is it just being sincere?
