The Sinner being Reproved is made Better or Worse

The sinner under the afflictive hand of divine providence, is always made better or worse. If sickness and pain and the death of friends do not wean him from the world, and drive him to God, they harden his heart. This is the effect of all the judgments of heaven-of all the calamities and miseries of human life. This is strikingly illustrated in the case of Pharaoh, king of Egypt. Because sentence against an evil work is not speedily executed, therefore the heart of the sons of men are fully set in them to do evil.
