Why We Shouldn’t Want Our Best Life Now

Filed under: Uncategorized — cubsfan1980 @ 12:07 pm

It is a melancholy fact, that constant temporal prosperity, as a general rule, is injurious to a believer’s soul. We cannot stand it. Sickness and losses and crosses and anxiety and disappointments seem absolutely mindful to keep us humble, watchful and spiritual-minded. They are needed as the pruning knife to the vine and the refiner’s furnace to gold.
