Suffering Reveals God’s Love

WatsonThomas Watson:

If [God] frowns, or dips his pen in gall, it is done in love. Afflictions, though sharp arrows, are shot from a loving Father. God afflicts in love to humble and purify. He smites that he may save. If he hides his face it is in love.

Thomas Watson, The Lord’s Prayer12
