Keller On Suffering Like Job

“… some suffering has no purpose other than to lead a person to love God more ardently for himself alone and so discover the ultimate peace and freedom.”

“For since God takes away all our goods and our life through many tribulations, it is impossible for the heart to be calm and to bear this unless it clings to better goods, that is, united with God through faith.”

That second quote is Keller quoting Martin Luther. Both are immense and have helped encourage me in this season of grief.
