Time and again, the Bible tells us to take our focus off ourselves, and put it on others.

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Time and again, the Bible tells us to take our focus off ourselves, and put it on others. 2 Corinthians, chapter 1 says, “Even when we are weighed down with troubles, it is for your comfort and salvation!” Oh friend, always and always when we are in pain, when we are hurting, when we’re going through trials, we are to remember others. If we are weighed down with troubles, it is for the comfort and salvation of others who are hurting. If we’re suffering, they gain when we pray. They gain when we persevere. They can’t help but gain when our suffering becomes a platform for sacrificial intercessions for them and as we perseverance. So today, if you are hurting, it could very well be for the rich and lasting encouragement of others. So… what to do with pain? Pray and persevere. For when you remember others, you my friend, are helped.
