The Same Might Have Been Your Lot

Thomas Boston, Works, 6:380:

János Thorma (1870-1937) Suffering People (1892)Adore the mercy of God to you, and wonder at his sparing you, when ye see others smart under the hand of God, which ye do not feel. Acknowledge, that whatever others meet with, the same might have been your lot, if the Lord had dealt with you as ye deserve; as the church did, Lam. 3.22, “It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.”
