An upside to economic downturns

A young man in England, born to wealth and status, was planning to go into business.  In one day, his family lost their fortune, which freed him to pursue another profession- the church.  Ultimately, his ministry strengthened hundreds of souls whom he pastored and thousands more whom reached and still reaches through the written word.

If you’ve ever benefitted from J. C. Ryle, you have economic disaster to thank.  If you haven’t benefitted from him yet, please go find something he wrote and read it.  His family’s loss can be your gain.
