We go through hardships and trials to build up our characters. To make us stronger and to gain compassion for other people. Christ uses hardships to build up love for those that hurt. We love not despise, we pray healing for those whom hurt. We love those that despise us and for those that hurt us. For he is building his character in each of us that loves him. For he is a God that loves his Creation which is everyone. Not just the ones that chase after him , but everyone of us. For he lets it rain on the just and the unjust as well .
