The fire of adversity

for September 4

Many passages of Scripture will never be made clear by the commentator; they must be expounded by experience.

Many a text is written with secret ink, which must be held to the fire of adversity to make it readable. You see stars when looking up from the bottom of a well, though none may then be visible above ground, and in the deeps of trouble you will discern many a starry truth which would not else have been visible to you.

[From the original Spurgeon Birthday Book published by Passmore & Alabaster, London.]
