Sunday Meditation – A Conscience Tender toward Sin

“Affliction also draws the soul into sweet and near communion with God. Outward prosperity is a great obstruction to our communion because we inordinately let out our affections to earthly things, and we allow them to come between God and our hearts and interrupt that sweet and constant traffic and fellowship. . . . The least sin yet has the nature of sin in it, as the least drop of poison is poison. . . . But now, affliction deadens the heart to the world and makes the conscience tender towards sin. Affliction helps us to pray: ‘Lord, you made my heart for yourself, and it is restless until it can rest in you. Return unto your rest, O my soul!'”
