Good Comes from Affliction!

“Before I was afflicted I went astray: but now have I kept thy word.” (Psalm 119:67) “When God lays men upon their backs, then they look up to heaven. God’s smiting His people is like the musician’s striking upon the violin, which makes it put forth melodious sound. How much good comes to the saints by affliction! When they are pounded they send forth their sweetest smell. Affliction is a bitter root, but it bears sweet fruit.” ~ Thomas Watson
