Affliction and Suffering

The secret formula of the saints: When I am in the cellar of affliction, I look for the Lord's choicest wines. - By Samuel Rutherford

Not to be afflicted is a sign of weakness; for, therefore God imposeth no more on me, because he sees I can bear no more. - By Joseph Hall

As the wicked are hurt by the best things, so the godly are bettered by the worst. - By William Jenkyn

Afflictions are light when compared with what we really deserve. They are light when compared with the sufferings of the Lord Jesus. But perhaps their real lightness is best seen by comparing them with the weight of glory which is awaiting us. - By Arthur W. Pink
