The Purpose of the Crook

“But as the fire under the pot makes the scum to rise up, appear atop, and run over, so the crook in the lot rises up from the bottom and brings out such corruptions as otherwise one could hardly imagine to be within…The truth is, the crook in the lot is the great engine of Providence for making men appear in their true colors, discovering both their ill and their good.”

– Thomas Boston, From his “The Crook in the Lot”, 30-31
