My punishment was good for me, because it made me learn your commands (The Bible).
Though a doctor inflicts much pain and suffering on a patient, generally he is not considered a cruel person who draws pleasure from torturing others. On the contrary, he will always be remembered and respected as a man of great character and help. Though painful, a patient agrees to put up with the suffering imposed on him only because he is convinced that whatever is done to him is for his own goodness. It is true with the various miseries and agonies in human life. Certain developments in life are really hard to understand and man fails to find any intrinsic value in such painful experiences. But the truth is, today or tomorrow, there will come a day when one profits from those problems once seemed useless and futile. At that moment of revelation one may remember that such painful experiences were actually blessings in disguise and they have moulded his personality and character.
Happy is the person who remains faithful under trials, because when he succeeds in passing such a test,
he will receive as his reward the life which God has promised to those who love him. (The Bible, James 1:12).
