“Thank God for pain.
Most of life's blessings, in my experience, are potential curses. And vice versa. So it is with physical pain.
Acute short term physical pain, whether mild or severe, is virtually always a blessing. It is a signal that something is wrong with the body, something that needs attention. Without that signals our lives would quite quickly become devastated.
But pain is useful ONLY as a signal that something is wrong, be it a broken ankle, a burn or a cinder in the eye. Once the problem is diagnosed and is being appropriately treated, there is no reason for the signal to continue. Pain has lost its utility. If the pain does continue, the blessing has become a curse.”
