Suffering brings blessing

We must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.  (Acts 14:22)
"If you aspire to be a son of consolation; if you would partake of the priestly gift of sympathy; if you would pour something beyond commonplace consolation into a tempted heart; if you would pass through the intercourse of daily life with the delicate tact that never inflicts pain; if you must be content to pay the price of a costly education -- like Him, you must suffer."
       - F. W. Robertson in Streams in the Desert (August 15) by Mrs. Charles E. Cowman
