The Biblical text for this meditation is Romans 5:3-5
And not only that, but we also boast in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4and endurance produces character, and character produces hope, 5and hope does not disappoint us, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that has been given to us.
“How do we respond to the harsh environment in which we now live?” For people of faith, the cross (as the symbol of faith) reminds us that Godly things can come out of suffering. The function and symbolism of the Lananin protein within us provides a model of how to relate faith and life and respond to great challenges around us so that we remain productive, not destructive. .
