When I had to consider the meaning of suffering I was faced with the ageless question:  Why does God allow it?
I conceive the answer to be that God has need of us to suffer for him; otherwise he could not know the extent of his creation, since creation without suffering does not exist.
God has created us to suffer through us, and since we believe that God is compassionate, think what agony our suffering must cause Him, cosmic suffering, on such scale!
It must be hard for God to do this to us, it must cause Him endless, infinite pain, since he is incapable of release through sleep or death.  There he has shown us mercy; there we have the advantage of Him.
