Periods of Pain

Pain is an interesting phenomenon.

What we can learn from pain will depend on the type of pain we are experiencing.

God made our bodies to experience pain in order to let us know that something is wrong. Something needs repair, or attention.

Touch a hot stove and immediately you feel pain. The object is to get you to remove your hand from the hot stove so that worse damage is not done. It is a survival mechanism.

Tooth pain tells us there is infection. Back pain can tell us there is muscle strain because we are not lifting properly. Foot pain can tell us that we need shoes that give us better support. A stomachache can tell us that we have eaten too much, or the food we ate wasn’t good for us.

Of course, there are more serious types of pain, and these can teach us the real limits of our endurance.
