CQOD: 06/06/06 -- Henry: the meaning of affliction

Christian Quotation of the Day

June 6, 2006
Commemoration of Ini Kopuria, Founder of the Melanesian Brotherhood, 1945
    Behold, blessed is the one whom God reproves; therefore despise not the discipline of the Almighty. For he wounds, but he binds up; he shatters, but his hands heal.
    -- Job 5:17,18 (ESV)

    Extraordinary afflictions are not always the punishment of extraordinary sins, but sometimes the trial of extraordinary graces. Sanctified afflictions are spiritual promotions.
    ... Matthew Henry (1662-1714)

Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, send Your healing to my broken life.
