Spurgeon on Waiting

The great London preacher offers us this insight:

“That which too lightly comes may be too lightly prized. Perhaps our ungrateful spirits need tutoring to thankfulness by an education of waiting. We might not loudly sing if we did not deeply sigh. Wanting and waiting lead to panting and pleading; and these in due time lead to joying and rejoicing.”

Both reason and experience testify that he is correct.
