Suffering…losing the excess


A lump of ore may not be so big as when it went into the fire, but it is quite as precious. There is quite as much gold in it now as there was at first. What has gone? Nothing but that which is best gone. The dross is gone; but all the gold is there. O child of God, you may decrease in bulk, but not in bullion! You may lose importance,
but not innocence. You may not talk so big; but there shall be really more to talk of.
