Rutherford: the cellar of affliction

Thursday, June 4, 2020
My son, do not despise the LORD’s discipline
    and do not resent his rebuke,
because the LORD disciplines those he loves,
    as a father the son he delights in.
    —Proverbs 3:11-12 (NIV)
    When I am in the cellar of affliction, I look for the Lord’s choicest wines.
    ... Samuel Rutherford (1600-1664)
    See also Prov. 3:11-12; Ps. 19:9-10; 119:103; Acts 5:41; 2 Cor. 11:23-30; Phil. 1:12-14;
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, help me always to see Your love in my suffering.
