Quotes from All Things for Good

All Things for Good, by Thomas Watson, is a book I've been recommending to people for are a few quotes I like from the book:
  • If it is good for us, we shall have it; if it is not good for us, then the withholding of it is good.
  • The mercies of God make a sinner proud, but a saint humble.
  • Faith keeps the heart from sinking in despair, fear keeps it from floating in presumption.
  • As in a watch, the wheels seem to move contrary one to another, but all carry on the motions of the watch: so things that seem to move cross to the godly, yet by the wonderful providence of God work for their good.
  • God's rod is a pencil to draw Christ's image more lively upon us.
  • If God does not give you that which you like, He will give you that which you need.  A physician does not so much study to please the taste of the patient, as to cure his disease.
