Some people view suffering differently.

     A Christian views suffering from the perspective of God's eternal purposes. Sin, suffering, and death is an enemy that originated with the enemy Satan. The last enemy to be destroyed is death. (1 Corinthians 15:26). In heaven, "God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new." (Revelation 21:4-5).

     How does the Christian know this? Through spiritual understanding. The man without the Spirit does not accept the things that come from the Spirit of God, for they are foolishness to him, and he cannot understand them, because they are spiritually discerned. (1 Cor 2:14, NIV).

I want to have faith like this.

I still don't understand why they suffer so much.
