Flavel: troubles vs. mercies

Tuesday, August 3, 2021
    I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
    —Romans 8:18 (NIV)
    Shall light troubles make you forget weighty mercies? Remember the church’s true riches are laid out of the reach of all its enemies: they may make you poor, but not miserable.
    ... John Flavel (1628-1691), A Saint Indeed [1667], in The Whole Works of the Reverend Mr. John Flavel, v. V, London: J. Mathews, 1799, p. 449 (see the book)
    See also Rom. 8:18; Prov. 4:23; Matt. 5:11-12; Acts 20:24; 2 Cor. 4:17-18; 1 Pet. 1:6-7
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You have provided Your people with spiritual riches.
