Suffering – Elder Neal A. Maxwell

“Some things happen to us because of our own mistakes and our own sins.  Still other trials and tribulations come to us merely as a part of living.  We are not immunized against all inconvenience and difficulties nor against aging.  There is another dimension of suffering, and other challenges that come to us even though we seem to be innocent.  These come to us because an omniscient Lord deliberately chooses to school us.  ‘Nevertheless, the Lord seeth fit to chasten his people; yea, he trieth their patience and their faith’ (Mosiah 23:21)” (ATTSGTE, pp. 29-30)
