Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake. —  2 Cor. xii. 10.

8.

Understanding this, Paul took pleasure in infirmities, for it enabled him to triumph over them, — he declared that “the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus hath made me free from the law of sin and death;” he took pleasure in “reproaches” and “persecutions,” because they were so many proofs that he had wrought the problem of being beyond the common apprehension of sinners; he took pleasure in “necessities,” for they tested and developed latent power.  (Eddy, Mary Baker, Miscellaneous Writings, p.201:16-24)
