A Temporary Hell

Whatever affliction or trouble a child of God meets with—
it is all the hell he shall ever have! Whatever eclipse may
be upon his name or estate—it is but a little cloud which
will soon be blown over—and then his hell is past!

Death begins a wicked man’s hell.
Death ends a godly man’s hell.

Think with yourself, “What is my affliction? It is but a
temporary hell. Indeed, if all my hell is here on earth
—it is but an easy hell. What is the cup of affliction
—compared to the cup of damnation!”

-Thomas Watson
