If the experience of suffering recalibrates our mind and redirects our focus toward God; the only hope we have left when everything else dries up, then is our suffering a hardship or is it a blessing? This Sunday, we’ll dive into the question of why the faithful suffer, and find the promise of Jesus on both sides of our hardship and blessing.

Now on his way to Jerusalem, Jesus traveled along the border between Samaria and Galilee. As he was going into a village, ten men who had leprosy met him. They stood at a distance and called out in a loud voice, “Jesus, Master, have pity on us!” When he saw them, he said, “Go, show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed. One of them, when he saw he was healed, came back, praising God in a loud voice. He threw himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him—and he was a Samaritan. Jesus asked, “Were not all ten cleansed? Where are the other nine?” ~ Luke 17:11-17
