Pain can teach you well, but not without grace. Pain can warn you of present problems, and help you discern future ones. But if it lets go of grace’s hand, it becomes resentful and guarded, and constrains you to be the same. Grace transforms pain into wisdom with unceasing love, joy, and peace, and compels you to become all that and more.
“My grace is always more than enough for everything you face” (2 Cor. 12:9).
