To Comfort God's Afflicted People
If we are to comfort God’s afflicted people, we must, first, be afflicted ourselves. Tribulation will make our wheat fit to be bread for saints. Adversity is the choicest book in our library, printed in black letters, but majestically illuminated.
Job makes a glorious comforter and preacher of patience, but no one turns either to Bildad, Zophar or Eliphaz, who were “miserable comforters” because they had never been miserable.
