God created human beings for the following reasons:

  1. To know Him

  2. To love Him

  3. To serve Him

  4. To be happy with Him forever

Our first parent, Adam and Eve enjoyed a life of complete happiness before they committed sin. They never knew what pain nor sorrow was until they disobeyed God. In short, both were perfect beings until they committed the sin of disobedience against God.

Disobedience may simple be defined as the failure to obey rules, command or someone in authority.

Adam and Eve were the first human beings to disobey God.

Joseph (in the old testament of the bible) is the 11th son of Jacob out of 12 brothers. He is so loved by his father because he was born when his father was in his old age. When his brothers saw that their father loved him more than any of them, they hated the young innocent boy (Joseph). Meanwhile, his dad made a special coat for him.

According to the Bible (Genesis 37), Joseph is a dreamer boy (and also an excellent interpreter of dreams). This gift of his further made him an object of envy and hate among his brothers.

By looks, Joseph is a handsome young man and Potipher’s wife could not take her seductive eyes off him. She made a series of sexual advances to Joseph but he clearly refused her in all the attempts she had made. Joseph showed discipline and fear of the Lord during this period of temptation.

After failed attempts to seduce Joseph, she finally got hold of a piece of Joseph’s garment when Joseph ran away from her sexual seduction. She became furious, perhaps afraid that Joseph might report her to Potipher, her husband. She therefore lied to Potipher that Joseph attempted to seduce her and she ran away grabbing a piece of Joseph’s clothing. She showed Potipher the cloth as a proof of her lies. For this reason, Potipher imprisoned Joseph.

Joseph had always prospered every where he found himself, and the prison is not an exception. Even in the prison, the warden promoted him by putting him in charge of all the prisoners.

Beauty of Suffering - Len AcademyAccording to the International Association for the Study of Pain (IASP);

Pain is defined as an unpleasant sensory and emotional experience associated with actual or potential tissue damage.

Pain is a sign that something unpleasant is about to happen, is happening or had happened. It creates a memory to avoid facing another future (similar) danger. For instance, think of 'a baby and a fire'. The baby touched the fire previously and got hurt. Now when he encounters the fire, he won’t touch it.

As we grow, we experience different forms of suffering, some of which will define our destiny. Consider this instance of a legendary footballer below:

  • Christiano Ronaldo is a footballer who had achieved greatness because he spent extra hours on trainings, fitness and hard-work. We can see the efforts of his work on the pitch. If he had gone about drinking, trying to avoid the stress and suffering of trainings, he may not have become what he is.

  • Also, students suffer sleepless nights to get good grades.

Without suffering and pains, we would not properly understand the true meanings of love, joy, faith, hope, contentment, perseverance and victory. All of these things happen because of suffering.
