Spurgeon’s Faith’s Check Book – September 10

Sufferers Make Strong Believers

It is good for a man that he bear the yoke in his youth.

Lamentations 3:27

“The yoke of affliction, disappointment, and excessive labor is by no means to be sought for; but when the Lord lays it on us in our youth, it frequently develops a character which glorifies God and blesses the church.

Come, my soul, bow thy neck; take up they cross. It was good for thee when young; it will not harm thee now. For Jesus’ sake, shoulder it carefully.”

I have been really encouraged by Spurgeon’s writings, and I hope this gentle exhortation strengthens you as well.

Good night!
