"I wish, brothers and sisters, that we could all imitate "the pearl oyster"--A hurtful particle intrudes itself into its shell, and this vexes and grieves it. It cannot reject the evil, but what does it do but "cover" it with a precious substance extracted out of its own life, by which it turns the intruder into a pearl! Oh, that we could do so with the provocations we receive from our fellow Christians, so that pearls of patience, gentleness, and forgiveness might be bred within us by that which otherwise would have harmed us."
~Charles Spurgeon

Beautiful yet convicting quote. What a unique way of looking at Romans 8:28. God can work all things together for our good, if only we let Him work in us. Thank you for sharing, Ana!
