Source: 30 Biblical Reasons Why God's People Suffer
The "banquet of consequences" our sin always forces us to eat is represented by the hog pen that brought the prodigal son to the place that "he came to himself" (Luke 15:17). When suffering is our heavenly Father's way of moving us to repentance, toward our heavenly Father's loving embrace and His will for our lives, that suffering is an expression of God's love.
