Worth the trouble

Even when we are weighed down with troubles, it is for your comfort and salvation! For when we ourselves are comforted, we will certainly comfort you. Then you can patiently endure the same things we suffer. 2 Cor. 1:6-7

We are in this together. Sometimes our pain is the very thing that equips us to offer comfort to someone else. Sometimes the fact that we are currently in a comfortable position makes us perfect candidates to render aid to those with troubles. The nature of community is that we are going to inconvenience one another and sometimes we are going to cause inconvenience to others. Be okay with that.

Lord, help me see myself and others as worth the trouble, especially when it is trouble.
