TEXT: John 16:33
Owen Feltham said, "Discontents are sometimes the better parts of our lives. I know not which is the most useful. Joy I may choose for pleasure; but adversities are the best for profit; and sometimes these do so far help me, that I should, without them, want much of the joy I have."
This, the final verse of John chapter 16, marks the end of Jesus' discourse with His disciples before He went to the cross. It is an excellent summary of the message that Jesus has been trying to get across to them and to us throughout this entire chapter. "These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace."
