The Crook in the Lot (1)

“Thine own wickedness shall correct thee, and thy backslidings shall reprove thee.” (Jer. 2:19)

Though the sin was a passing action, or a course of no long continuance, the mark of the divine displeasure for it, set on the sinner in the crook of his lot, may pain him long and sore, that by repeated experience he may know what an evil and bitter thing it was….

And one may have confessed and sincerely repented of that sin, which yet shall make him go halting to the grave, though it cannot carry him to hell.

— Thomas Boston, The Crook in the Lot (Christian Heritage, 2002) p. 52
