Using humor and many biblical citations, Matthew Leonard brings new meaning to the passage: "The Lord disciplines those whom he loves." All Christians need to hear this talk! Donna-College Station, TX
I always wondered if God truly loved us why did he allow us to suffer so much. I understand this now. Are suffering is for our own good. I need to learn from my suffering and become a better person. Not only is this good for me because I learned something but I can also offer this suffering up to God. When I feel I am suffering unjustly I will now look to the cross and offer it up to God and remember this Cd and the lessons I have learned. Thank you I already know who I am sharing it with.
