Thursday Quote Day: George Matheson

For this week’s “Thursday Quote Day” and to celebrate Thanksgiving, here is a quote from Scottish minister George Matheson:

“My God, I have never thanked Thee for my ‘thorn!’ I have thanked Thee a thousand times for my roses, but never once for my ‘thorn;’ I have been looking forward to a world where I shall get compensation for my cross as itself a present glory. Teach me the glory of my cross; teach me the value of my ‘thorn.’ Show me that I have climbed to Thee by the path of pain. Show me that my tears have made my rainbow.”  (George Matheson)
