John 9:1–12

The study of pain and suffering breaks down wrong ideas that connect hardship with doing wrong. Reactions to suffering, like blaming oneself or others, are compared to the Christian belief that suffering can have a role in God’s design. In the end, suffering can trigger personal growth, change, and a stronger bond with God.
