The Bible gives a good deal of attention to the reality of suffering.
It does not regard it as an illusion as some religions and sects do, nor deal with it superficially.
CAN SUFFERING BE GOD’S WILL.
Peter writes, “So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator…” (1 Pet 4:19) It is better, if it is God’s will, to suffer for doing good than for doing evil. (1 Pet 3:17)
