“Earthly comforts are loaned. They are not gifts, for all that we possess is God’s property. He has only lent them, and what He lends He has a right to take. Therefore, do not complain when God takes His own.
Beloved, because these calamities may be expected, let us be prepared. Hold all things loosely. Hold them as though you did not have them. Look at them as fleeting; never expect them to remain. Never make mortal things your gods. If you do, your heart will be broken when they are taken.” C.H. Spurgeon
