For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison … “ (2 Corinthians 4:17, NASB)

“Trials do serve their purpose …

Just as the weight of a grandfather’s clock, or the stabilizers in a ship, are necessary for them to work properly, so are troubles to the soul. The sweetest perfumes are obtained only through tremendous pressure, the fairest flowers grow on the most isolated and snowy peaks, the most beautiful gems are those that have suffered the longest at the jeweler’s wheel, and the most magnificent statues have endured the most blows from the chisel. All of these, however, are subject to God’s law. Nothings happens that has not been appointed with consummate care and foresight. from Daily Devotional Commentary
