Fate & Providence

From the church bulletin yesterday:

What is fate? Fate is this-Whatever is, must be. But there is a difference between that and Providence. Providence says, “Whatever God ordains must be; but the wisdom of God never ordains anything without a purpose. Everything in this world is working for some one great end…The doctrine of Providence is not, that what is, must be; but that, what is, works together for the good of our race, and especially for the good of the chosen people of God.

~Charles Spurgeon
