In a world of luxury and entitlement it seems natural to pursue comfort and security above all else. It’s become second nature for us to avoid extra responsibility and unnecessary discomfort at all costs. We do everything we can to maintain a desired standard of living even to our own harm. Second Corinthians, however, makes it clear that true comfort is not found in the absence of pain, but in the presence of God. Jesus is ruling over our circumstances and he walks with us through the disappointments, insecurities and discomforts of life.
- 2 Corinthians 1:3 - 7
