Piper on Abe Lincoln and Suffering

John Piper provides some insight into the life of Abraham Lincoln here and draws out how his personal and national suffering drew him closer to God.

Piper concludes with:

I pray for all of you who suffer loss and injury and great sorrow that it will awaken for you, as it did for Lincoln, not an empty nihilism, but a deeper reliance on the infinite wisdom and love of God’s inscrutable providence.
