Providence plays a tune that the ordinary man will not understand. To the ordinary man, providence, particularly when it comes to matters of pain and evil, is only so much noise, painful in the experience, and painful to the heart. In order to appreciate the music of providence, we must learn a new kind of music, not human music but divine music.
