Cleansing Power of Undeserved Suffering

Nothing is futile in the spiritual world. When confronted with undeserved suffering, we need to have courage to repent all our sins and be grateful that through the suffering not just all our sins but also even sins of others can be cleansed. This redemptive power of undeserved suffering is what makes the world full of evil at least bearable until the coming of the heavenly kingdom. This does not mean we have to suffer in silence.
