2 Nephi 9:21

"And he cometh into the world that he may save all men if they will hearken unto his voice; for behold, he suffereth the pains of all men, yea, the pains of every living creature, both men, women, and children, who belong to the family of Adam."
2 Nephi 9:21

I think the whole idea of Christ suffering for us is an amazing one.  Not because I am glad he had to suffer, but because through suffering the pains of all of us, he knows us on a very deep level.  Christ has actually walked in our shoes, and felt what we feel.  He understands us better than anyone else can.  God is never, ever out of tune with the world.  He knows each of us intimately enough to know our deepest pains, and because of that, he knows how to comfort us, and how to guide us into happiness and peace.  God came here to save us, and we need to be saved.  None of us is perfect.  We all suffer pain, often self-inflicted through poor choices.  Today, let's hearken to his voice.  Let's stop resisting God and thinking that he doesn't know us or understand our situation.  He does.  Instead, let's invite him into our lives, and work with him on how to solve our problems and find joy. :)
