When we suffer through trials, God often uses that pain to help minister to others. We can’t sympathize with what others are going through unless we ourselves have gone through something similar, and as the Apostle Paul says. God “comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God” (2nd Cor 1:4). In other words, we give out the same comfort we’ve received from God.
