Conflict and Pain are Necessary

It’s ironic that the absence of conflict and pain makes life boring and less meaningful.

It seems all the art, music, literature, science, technology, and innovation, and love, inspiration, compassion, mercy, generosity, and sacrifice, are driven by the passion and drama that comes from the conflicts and pains we encounter in daily life.

Conflict can bring hatred, fear, death and despair, but it can also bring forth so much joy, courage, life and hope; pain needs to be felt, for without it we could not know and appreciate joy.

Pray for the grace and wisdom to face conflict where and when it makes sense rather than avoid it all the time, because it is the necessary evil that makes things happen.
