“To keep me from getting puffed up, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger from Satan to torment me and keep me from getting proud.” 2 Corinthians 12:7
We do not know how much of Paul’s rich, beautiful life, and his noble work for his Master–he owed to his thorn. Just so, we do not know how much we are indebted to our sufferings and sorrows. Our richest lessons–are the fruit of pain, of weakness, of sorrow.
