How Pain Builds Bridges

“He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us.”
—2 Corinthians 1:4

It has been said that success builds walls, but failure builds bridges. Sometimes when we tell someone how everything is going well, it doesn’t help them at all. We say, “Hey man, things are going great for me. I just got a promotion, we’re going to buy a bigger house, and the kids have both been accepted into the finest colleges.” Meanwhile, their house just burned down. And a wall just went up.


General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 

But when someone says, “Pray for me. I’m hurting right now. I have a problem. I just got bad news from the doctor,” your heart goes out to them. You care. You want to help them. And so you should. We live in a world of pain and hurt. Everyone has it. And we should reach out to others who are in pain.

When we go through adversity, we can help others who are going through it as well. The apostle Paul wrote, “He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us” (2 Corinthians 1:4). God lets us go through adversity so we will have a new compassion for others who are in pain.

Since our son Christopher went to Heaven, God has given me a platform to bring comfort to others that He has brought to me. So many hurting people have written me and have talked with me. And there are some who will listen to me today who wouldn’t have listened to me before. I thank God for that. But am I glad all this has happened so I can have this new ministry? No. I am glad, however that God can bring some good and some comfort out of that pain.
