Also, perhaps the will of God sucks. Jesus wanted to be brutally tortured, humiliated, and crucified. The Apostles and many early Christians got brutally murdered.
If you don't believe in an abrahamic God, whatever higher power you have must be kind of cruel as well because he/she permits all of this.
But perhaps they are so rewarded and glorified in the next life that they are very grateful for the martyrdom and pain they suffered in this life.
If Christian tradition is correct, Jesus is glad about what happened to him, and the Martyrs who shared that fate are very glad it happened as well.
Most other faiths have similar positive views regarding suffering and death.

Come to Nashville and you can tour his Estate, and chortle and caper about when you see the tiny boxes behind the house where he kept his slaves.
He might not feel honored by it , but when he sees the good luck it brings people, that is the sacrifice He is willing to take!
Also, beings that He accomplished the impossible, that could still motivate people to believe in God, Destiny, or the power of believing in oneself, even if He was an ass hole.
