God washes and scours, trains and nurtures them!

God washes and scours, trains and nurtures them!

(The Preacher’s Book)

Frankincense, when it is put into the fire–gives off the greater perfume. 

Spice, if it is pounded and beaten–smells the sweeter. 

The earth, when it is torn up with the plough–becomes more fruitful. 

The seed in the ground, after frost and snow and winter storms–grows the thicker.

The nearer the vine is pruned to the stock–the larger grapes it yields.

The grape, when it is most pressed and beaten–makes the sweetest wine.

Linen, when it is washed and wrung and beaten–is so made fairer and whiter. 

In the same way, the children of God receive great benefit by affliction–for by it God washes and scours, trains and nurtures them.

“Every branch that bears fruit He prunes, that it may bear more fruit!” John 15:2
