J.C. Ryle on Trials

"Let us mark this well.  There is nothing which shows our ignorance so much as our impatience under trouble.  We forget that every cross is a message from God, and intended to do us good in the end.  Trials are intended to make us think -- to wean us from the world, to send us to the Bible, to drive us to our knees.  Health is a good thing; but sickness is far better, if it leads us to God.  Prosperity is a great mercy, but adversity is a greater one, if it brings us to Christ.  Anything, anything is better than living in carelessness, and dying in sin.  Better a thousand times be afflicted, like the Canaanitish mother, and like her flee to Christ, than live at ease, like the rich "fool," and die at least without Christ and without hope. (Luke 12:20.)"
