Why, when I suffer, do I question my loving Shepherd’s wisdom as if to tell Him He’s going the wrong way?

What is life worth when there is no God? What is it worth when there is?

Can we check sin off our list when we reach old age? Will we ever be “out of the woods” when it comes to temptation? Sadly, no. We’ll always have plenty of opportunities to sin, but perhaps in ways that are the opposite of the sins of youth.

Dr. William Toffler, MD, an Oregon physician, recognizes how important it is to listen for what is not being said. How well physicians listen and respond to their patients "has a profound effect... on their view of themselves and their inherent worth."

If unbearable pain was the main reason people chose assisted suicide, we would naturally look to doctors to fix the problem. But it’s not the main reason. Unbearable pain doesn’t even rank as one of the top five.

Other than perhaps Kumbaya, it's difficult to find a hymn or gospel song strongly emphasizing brotherly care -- especially ones that so powerfully creates a picture for us of carrying one another on this long journey of life. Most of our hymns (very appropriately) sing to or about God, but isn't the second greatest commandment something to sing about as well?

When Life Matters Worldwide's President, Tom Lothamer, speaks in churches, he makes a point of sharing the forgiveness that can be found in Christ after an abortion. He doesn't know who's listening. Perhaps someone with a guilty conscience, or someone contemplating abortion.

God is a defender of the weak and a shelter for the oppressed. Over and over in the Psalms, the psalmist expresses his utter dependence on -- and faith in -- God by saying, “You are my refuge. In You I trust.” It’s wonderful to think of God in this way. No other god has it in its nature to be a refuge (Deut. 32:37-38, Judges 6:31).

It's so tempting to say, "You're strong! You're gonna make it." But we should instead be praying suffering people will BECOME strong . . . in the Lord. For some of us, however, holding our silence is a form of extreme suffering.
