Facing trials and afflictions

There are many of the graces of God’s people that can only grow in time of affliction.  There is a plant in the garden which the gardener tramples below his feet to make it grow better; so it is with many of the graces of God’s children—they grow better by being tried.

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness.” (James 1:2-3)

-Robert Murray McCheyne
