Fear of Sin
The old naturalist, Ulysses Androvaldus, tells us that a dove is so afraid of a hawk, that she will be frightened at the sight of one of its feathers. Whether it be so or not, I cannot tell; but this I know, that when a man has had a thorough shaking over the jaws of hell, he will be so afraid of sin, that even one of its feathers: any one sin: will alarm and send a thrill of fear through his soul. This is a part of the way by which the Lord turns us when we are turned indeed.
