My favorite show of all time is 'The Office'. In one episode, Andy, the character who grew up in privilege says 'I've lived an easy life, okay'. Frankly so have I. There are things that have brought a little discomfort but it's generally from my own doing.

WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT JESUS? He was a prophet mighty in word and deeds, yet also God. He was condemned to death by religious leaders. He died and on the third day rose again. He is our Rescuer.
