Store up for yourselves treasures in Heaven
where moth and rust cannot destroy and thieves cannot break in and steal

Jesus and Suffering

Since Jesus went through everything you're going through and more, learn to think like Him. Think of your sufferings as a weaning from that old sinful habit of always expecting to get your own way. Then you'll be able to live out your days free to pursue what God wants instead of being tyrannized by what you want.
1 Peter 4:1-2

There is the odd article on atheist websites saying that Jesus wasn't poor. That He didn't suffer. Rather, like Buddha, they say, Jesus was very wealthy.

Ya, right.
. His parents could only afford the offerings of the poor.
. He didn't have a place of His own to live.
. He ate His last meal in a borrowed room.
. He owned one cloak which was stripped from Him on the cross.
. He was buried in a borrowed tomb.
