Purposeful Suffering--Neal A Maxwell

posted Feb 28, 2017 04:57:23 by Kathryn Blose
Elder Neal A. Maxwell once shared what he had learned of purposeful suffering in these words:

“Certain forms of suffering, endured well, can actually be ennobling. …

“… Part of enduring well consists of being meek enough, amid our suffering, to learn from our relevant experiences. Rather than simply passing through these things, they must pass through us … in ways which sanctify [us].”

I love how Elder Maxwell had the goal to "not shrink" when he went through trials just as the Savior expressed that desire as he fulfilled the Atonement.

I pray that I can learn to be that strong.
