How to Profit From Sickness III

Direct. III There is many a deep corruption in the heart, which affliction openeth and discovereth, which deceitfulness hid, in the time of prosperity; and the detecting of these is no small benefit to the soul. When you come to part with wealth and honor, you shall better know how much you loved them, than you could before. Mark therefore what corruptions appear in you affliction, and how the heart discloseth its deceits, that you may know what to repent of and reform. (Taken from A Christian Directory by Richard Baxter.)
