Afflictions help to convince us of our preaching

“Come to a man that hath the world at will, and tell him, This is not your happiness; you have higher things to look after; and how little will he regard you! But when affliction comes, it speaks convincingly, and will be heard when preachers cannot.”

Richard Baxter, The Saints’ Everlasting Rest (chap 12, sec. 3), 208.
