Better to have sorrow and poverty?
Spurgeon, "THE DESIRE OF THE SOUL IN SPIRITUAL DARKNESS"
Better to have a Christian's days of sorrow,
than a worldling's days of mirth.
Better to have a Christian's sorrows, than a worldling's joys.
Ah! happier to be chained in a dungeon with a Paul,
than reign in the palace with an Ahab.
Better to be a child of God in poverty,
than a child of Satan in riches.
