It Could Always Be Worse

Rebbe Nachman adds an intriguing observation: Even in the midst of the worst misfortune, we can see evidence of G-d’s kindness! (Likutei Moharan I: 195). In every distress, G-d offers us some measure of relief.

For many a grieving child, there is the knowledge that “we did what we could” and that their parent’s suffering wasn’t an extended battle for endless years, or that their pain was minimal. And even if things are very, very difficult, we know that they could always be worse. That thought alone provides great consolation.
