Our Need for the Rod

“Look to the temper of your own hearts and nature, how apt you are to be lifted up, to forget God, to be carried away with the vanities of the world; See what foolishness is bound up in your heart!  Thus you will see the need of humbling circumstances for ballast, and of the rod for the fool’s back;  and if at any time you cannot see that need, believe it on the ground of God’s infinite wisdom, who does nothing in vain.”

– Thomas Boston, From his “The Crook in the Lot”,P.107-108
