Has anyone wondered what Bible #woke Christians read?
14 Do all things without grumbling or disputing, 15 that you may be blameless and innocent, children of God without blemish in the midst of a crooked and twisted generation, among whom you shine as lights in the world, 16 holding fast to the word of life, so that in the day of Christ I may be proud that I did not run in vain or labor in vain. 17 Even if I am to be poured out as a drink offering upon the sacrificial offering of your faith, I am glad and rejoice with you all. 18 Likewise you also should be glad and rejoice with me. (Phil 2)
It gets worse if you think that suffering is actually part and parcel of flourishing for Christians.

What about, “Thou shalt not covet . . . any thing that is thy neighbor’s” (Exodus 20:17).
Are you from the “do more, try harder” camp or something? Don’t you know’ it is finished’ – Jesus suffered well, so… we don’t have to suffer well, or hopefully not suffer at all.
Or since as Paul says often, our ‘pride” or boasting can only be in the Lord ,in the day of Christ (His work in us), maybe as John Y. says, the Spirit just doesn’t enable very much, so suffering well isn’t that possible
