Whatsoever is good for God's children they shall have it, for all is theirs to further them to heaven; therefore, if poverty be good, they shall have it; if disgrace be good, they shall have it; if crosses be good, they shall have them; if misery be good, they shall have it; for all is ours, to serve our greatest good.

God takes a safe course with his children. He permits the world to condemn them, that they may not be condemned with the world. The world hates them that they may not love the world, that they may be crucified to it. The world is to be crucified unto them; therefore they meet with such crosses and abuses and wrongs in the world. Because he will not suffer them to perish with the world, he sends them afflictions in and by the world.
