Thoughts During a Pandemic

Rain Drops

Scottish Puritan Jeremiah Burroughs mused:

All men are afraid of afflictions and troubled at affliction, but where is the man or woman that fears sin and flies from the serpent, and is troubled at sin more than any affliction?

It got me thinking. What if I borrowed and re-purposed Burroughs’ question:

All are afraid of affliction and troubled by the fear of this virus. But where is the man or woman who fears sin and is troubled by sin more than he or she is troubled by and fears  the coronavirus?  Where is the man or woman who is as vigorous about protecting our hearts from the infection of sin within as we are presently about washing our hands and covering our faces to prevent the virus from infecting our lungs?

An even more immediate crucial question: Am I such a man?
