12 Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; 13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
M: 1 Peter 1 Tu: 1 Peter 2 W: 1 Peter 3 Th: 1 Peter 4 F: 1 Peter 5
“Especially look to those sins to which your crosses have some reference and respect. Are you crossed in your goods? Think if you did not over-love them and get them unjustly. Or if in your children, see that you did not over-love them and coddle them. In what God smites you, see if you have not in that sinned against Him, and so frame to lament your sins and to seek help against them.”
