Warnings

A very skilful bowman went to the mountains in search of game. All the beasts of the forest fled at his approach. The lion alone challenged him to combat. The bowman immediately let fly an arrow, and said to the lion, 'I send thee my messenger, that from him thou mayst learn what I myself shall be when I assail thee.' The lion thus wounded rushed, away in great fear, and on a fox exhorting him to be of good courage, and not to run away at the first attack: 'You counsel me in vain, for if he sends so fearful a messenger, how shall I abide the attack of the man himself?'


If the warning admonitions of God's ministers fill the conscience with terror, what must it be to face the Lord himself? If one bolt of judgment bring a man into a cold sweat, what will it be to stand before an angry God in the last great day?
