Spurgeon on Thorns


Preaching on 2 Corinthians 12:7-10:

“A thorn is but a little thing, and indicates a painful but not a killing trial — not a huge, crushing, overwhelming affliction, but a common matter; none the less painful, however, because common and insignificant.  A thorn is a sharp thing, which pricks, pierces, irritates, lacerates, festers, and causes endless pain and inconvenience.  Yet it is almost a secret thing, not very apparent to anyone but the sufferer.”

-Charles Spurgeon, sermon “The Thorn in the Flesh” delivered at the Metropolitan Tabernacle on December 8, 1872.
