Agree or Disagree: Scriptures provide comfort during difficult times


Agree or Disagree: Scriptures provide comfort during difficult times

This was a picture I saw during the recent floods in Calgary.

In times of difficulty, many offer an inspirational Scriptures to offer hope, comfort, and peace. They believe being that the Bible is that source of comfort.

However, sometimes these well meaning verses can come across patronizing. I have seen them invalidate pain and grief. Also, remind people that because of their “sin” this “trial” has happened to them. That God is judging them or testing them. And they need to repent.

So for those who value the Scriptures, how do you find comfort in them in difficult times? And what is an appropriate way to use the Scriptures in difficult times?
