Spurgeon on Affliction

Spurgeon on Affliction:

It would be a very sharp and trying experience to me to think that I have an affliction which God never sent me, that the bitter cup was never filled by his hand, that my trials were never measured out by him, nor sent to me by his arrangement of their weight and quantity. (Christian History, Issue 29, Vol. 10, No. 1, 25)

I dare say the greatest earthly blessing that God can give to any of us is health, with the exception of sickness… Affliction is the best bit of furniture in my house. It is the best book in a minister’s library. (An All Round Ministry)
