Character exposed in suffering

Some quotes from Tullian Tchividjian from this sermon.

“Character is demonstrated more by our reactions than our actions.”

‘The flavour of a tea bag comes out best when put in hot water.”

“If you do not go to your grave confused you do not go to your grave trusting God.”

“Suffering doesn’t rob you of joy idolatery does.”

“If you are suffering and you are bitter or joyless then it means you’ve idolised whatever it is you are losing.”

“In the crucible of suffering you either become bitter or better.”

“You come from the womb with nothing and you go to the tomb with nothing.”

“You have everything you need already in Jesus.”

“Bitterness or joylessness in suffering happens when we’ve held on to something more than we’ve held on to God.”

“How is your present disappointment, discouragement or grief a window on what has actually captured your heart?” Paul Tripp

Thanks LT – some helpful quotes. Can you clarify this one?
“If you do not go to your grace confused you do not go to your grave trusting God.”
