Advantage of Afflications

“Afflictions are sent for this end, to bring us to the throne of grace, to teach us to pray, and to make the Word of God’s grace precious to us. It has always been to the advantage of God’s people to be afflicted. Many are taught with the briars and thorns of affliction, who would not learn otherwise.”

– Matthew Henry
