Gain

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort.  He comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any kind of affliction, through the comfort we ourselves receive from God.

2 Corinthians 1:3-4

We learn not only obedience through the things that we suffer, but it also gives us resources to help others.  Who can sympathize with another’s suffering who has never endured their own?  I don’t know anyone who invites affliction, but when it arrives we can be sure that we will gain, and so will others.
