There is so much going on in this world today that I felt compelled to post a short message saying that my thoughts and prayers are with the victims, victims' families of the Las Vegas Strip shooting. Even with the pain of losing my mom, I don't want to forget the others who are suffering today.

I am also thinking and praying for those affected by Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. I can only imagine the devastation these natural disasters brought to these people. I also want to pray for the victims in Mexico and their families with the recent earthquake.

Well said, Joy.
There never seems to be a shortage of misery in this world.
Just some things to think about.

Will Suffering Ever End?

WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS

“God . . . will wipe all tears from their eyes, and there will be no more death, suffering, crying, or pain.”—Revelation 21:3, 4

WHAT THAT CAN MEAN FOR YOU

Assurance that God does not cause our problems.—James 1:13.

Comfort from knowing that God feels for us when we suffer.—Zechariah 2:8.

Hope that all suffering will end.—Psalm 37:9-11.

CAN WE REALLY BELIEVE WHAT THE BIBLE SAYS?

Yes, for at least two reasons:

God hates suffering and injustice. Consider how God felt when his people in Bible times were cruelly mistreated. The Bible says that he was distressed because of “those who were treating them abusively.”—Judges 2:18

God has strong feelings about those who harm others. For example, the Bible says that “hands that shed innocent blood” are detestable to him.—Proverbs 6:16, 17.

God cares for us as individuals. Not only does each person know “his own plague and his own pain” but so does God!—2 Chronicles 6:29, 30.

Through his Kingdom, God will soon end the suffering of each individual. (Matthew 6:9, 10) In the meantime, he tenderly comforts those who sincerely look for him.—Acts 17:27; 2 Corinthians 1:3, 4.

Why does God allow suffering?

The Bible answers that question at ROMANS 5:12 and 2 PETER 3:9.

This is a good message. Many are suffering.
