Bitterness, man fear and people pleasing cause us to suffer needlessly. We take offense and our position as followers of Jesus Christ is weakened. How are we supposed to respond to hardship? Learn what the Bible says about suffering and pain. Are we suffering for righteousness sake, or for our own wrong-doing? Learn to make the most out of your situation and please the Lord in every circumstance.
