1 Cor. 1:5 For In Him You Have Been Enriched In Every Way--In All Your Speaking And In All Your Knowledge

In our pain we are poor. Our pain makes us live in an empty poverty. Yet, there is more to this picture. Along with the emptiness caused by our poverty, those of us who cling to the foot of Christ's cross have a wealth others do not have. Those of us in pain who cling to Christ's cross have wisdom beyond what is normal in this life. Those of us who possess the Lord's special wisdom in our pain know we possess a special knowledge. The Lord bestows upon us His special wisdom to help us work through our pain, to conquer our adversity, and to serve Him by serving others. Even in our pain, our life is still enriched by Christ Jesus.
