Transforming Shame into Hope
Suffering produces endurance, endurance produces character, and character creates hope that does not put us to shame.
If we realize that the suffering is part of our life, that it’s producing something good in us, then we’ll reform our mindset from shame to hope. If we don’t realize that the suffering is there to help, then we stay cemented in our despondent thinking.
The greatest reflection of hope is to understand that it begins in suffering.
suffering > endurance > character > hope
