MATTHEW 5:4 “BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO MOURN FOR THEY WILL BE COMFORTED.”
Jesus promises NOT the end of suffering this moment, but RELIEF from suffering. In our world there will always be reason to mourn but Jesus promises comfort and relief. The best way known TO BUILD CHARACTER and perfect one’s being is to go through adversity. That’s a necessity, that’s one of many reasons why suffering must be endured. What Jesus came to tell us is that Our Father, like a good human father with his child, will be there to give SUPPORT in times of trouble. His Spirt can lessen the pain and provide hope and assurance one will weather the storm somehow.
