Hey Lar,

Commenting on this verse, Richard Pratt, Jr. writes,

“Think of it this way. God calls us to troubles as surgeons invite us to their operating tables. Their knives inflict terrible pain. No sane person enjoys the ordeal of surgery. To deny the anguish is to lie. Nonetheless, we voluntarily submit to the knife. Why? We allow them to cut because the pain will bring about better health in the future.”

May the Lord grant us the grace to keep the goal of good in mind–always.

Seeking the grace to believe,
Joe
