J.C. Ryle quote on suffering

Through affliction He teaches us many precious lessons
that otherwise we would never learn.  
By affliction He shows us our emptiness and weakness, 
draws us to the throne of grace, 
purifies our afections, 
weans us from the world, 
and makes us long for heaven.

-J.C. Ryle
