Pain Helps You Understand Others

“For we do not have a high priest who is unable to empathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are–yet he did not sin.”
– Heb 4:15, NIV –

“Only a jinchuriki can understand a jinchuriki.”
– Tsunade Senju, Naruto –

“But knowing what it feels like to be hurt is exactly why we try to be kind to others. That’s what makes us human.
– Jiraiya, Naruto –

Jinchuriki. Or, host.
Someone who is forced to be a vessel containing a monstrous beast inside him/her.
Someone who is ostracized and shunned by the village though he/she does not deserve such hatred.

There is no way a normal human being can understand the feeling of a jinchuriki.
Can someone who leads a happy life understand the life of an outcast?
Hardly.
Only an outcast can understand an outcast.

Lord Jesus understands our physical weakness.
He endured much suffering during the road to Calvary.
He understands our emotional hurt too.
He was betrayed by His disciple and cast out by the very people He ministered too.

To be fair, God never creates any infirmity in this world.
It was never in His original design and it will not exist in His final design.
Infirmity happens because of sin; my sins, your sins, our sins.
Nevertheless, He allows us to experience infirmity that we may understand others (especially non-Christians) who experience it too.

When we are hurt, we understand the feeling of being hurt.
We then have 2 choices: revenge or mercy.
Revenge. We choose to exact the hurt  to others.
Mercy. We prevent the others from getting hurt like us.

Which one do you you choose?
