Not one grain too much!

(Henry Ward Beecher, 1813-1887)

“Endure suffering as discipline; God is treating you as sons. For what son is not disciplined by his father?” Hebrews 12:7 

Affliction comes to us all: 
  not to make us sad–but sober; 
  not to make us sorry–but to make us wise; 
  not to impoverish us–but to enrich us!

We are always in the furnace–or on the anvil.
By trials, God is shaping us for nobler things.

Troubles are often the tools by which God fashions us for better things!

No physician ever weighed out medicine to his patients with half so much care and exactness, as God weighs out every trial to His children. Not one grain too much, does He ever permit to be put in the scale! 

The troubles and worries of life may be as stumbling blocks in our way–or we may make them stepping-stones to a nobler character and to Heaven. 

“Our fathers disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, that we may share in His holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.” Hebrews 12:10-11
