Summary: If you think of this world as a training ground for Heaven, it can dramatically alter the way you think about things. God is not the author of suffering and He didn't introduce it to our planet—but every instance of suffering we encounter is an opportunity for God to act through us.
Verse: "Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself." —Philippians 2:1-3
