Affliction as a Blessing

July 21, 2010

Affliction can sometimes prove a blessing to a person’s soul. . . . There is nothing that shows our ignorance more than impatience under troubles. We forget that every cross is a message from God and intended to do us good in the end. Trials are intended to make us think, to wean us from the world, to send us to the Bible, to drive us to our knees. Health is a good thing, but sickness is far better if it drives us to God. Anything, anything is better than living in carelessness and dying in sin.

– J. C. Ryle
