It is natural to sufferers to think what they would do if the tables were turned. But perhaps our hearts may deceive us; we know not what we should do. We find it easier to discern the reasonableness and importance of a command when we have occasion to claim the benefit of it than when we have occasion to do the duty of it. See what is the duty we owe to our brethren in their affliction.
"Every creature is that to us (kind or unkind, comfortable or uncomfortable) which God makes it to be."
The Lord's hand is behind everything that is said and done to us. I think it's very helpful to remember that!
