The lesson of suffering

When I was in Ethiopia teaching Wisdom Literature, we spent a lot of time in Job.

I asked the class one day, “What have you learned from Job, or learned from suffering?”

One student answered: “Suffering is an opportunity to upgrade my faith.”

I learn far more teaching in Ethiopia than I can give out.
