I saw this video on Sunday. It is both heart-breaking and incredibly inspiring, especially since my mom was recently diagnosed with breast cancer (she’s doing incredibly well). Working in hospice, I interact with people like this constantly. Watch the video (scroll down to see the VodPod player on the right), then come back and answer these questions:
- Why do we assume that following Jesus guarantees us a safe, comfortable existence?
- How can such a believe be potentially devastating?
- What needs to happen for us to develop a biblical view of suffering?
Have a great weekend. I’ll be back in my old stompin’ grounds in VA from May 10-12. But never fear–I’ve already got posts ready to go for next week!
