Jeremiah Burroughs Examines How All Our Afflictions Do Not Even Tip the Scales, When Weighed Against All Gods Blessings

October 21, 2015

 "The consideration of the abundance of mercies that God bestows, and we enjoy. It is a speech of Luther (faith he) The Sea of Gods mercies, should swallow up all our particular afflictions, name any affliction that is upon thee, there's a Sea of mercy to swallow it up. If you pour a pail full of water on the floor of your house, it makes a great show, but if you throw it into the Sea, there is no appearance of it; so afflictions, considered in themselves, we think they are very great, but let them be considered with the Sea of Gods mercies we do enjoy, then they are not so much, they are nothing in comparison."
