Hebrews 12:2-3 (NIV)
2 Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
3 Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.

Look to Jesus if your life wearying you down and if you lose heart doing good. If you are struggling with sin, or if you got a lot pain, death in your family, if you lost a job 2 years ago and you can’t find another job. Look to Jesus and remember what he did for us on that cross what did for you when resurrected for us. Were adopted into his family, he gave his righteousness, he gave us the Holy Spirit, and we have God’s promises to us, he also gave us the Church family.

2 Corinthians 1:3-11 (NIV)
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort,
4 who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God.
5 For just as the sufferings of Christ flow over into our lives, so also through Christ our comfort overflows.
6 If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer.
7 And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.
8 We do not want you to be uninformed, brothers, about the hardships we suffered in the province of Asia. We were under great pressure, far beyond our ability to endure, so that we despaired even of life.
9 Indeed, in our hearts we felt the sentence of death. But this happened that we might not rely on ourselves but on God, who raises the dead.
10 He has delivered us from such a deadly peril, and he will deliver us. On him we have set our hope that he will continue to deliver us,
11 as you help us by your prayers. Then many will give thanks on our behalf for the gracious favor granted us in answer to the prayers of many.

If you suffered and God rescued your suffering, comfort other people who are suffering. God will be with you as confort other people. He will show you how give compassion to somebody who needs it. Looking to Christ when we are in pain or weary of life he will comfort you and turn around and help people look to Christ to find their comfort and show compassion to person who life beaten down. Then we are living children of God.
