Having established his first proposition, that “whatever crook there is in one’s lot is of God’s making,” Thomas Boston now concludes this point by showing the uses of this doctrine. He says 1) that it serves to reprove three sorts of people, 2) that is serves as a consolation to the afflicted children of God, & 3) that it serves as an exhortation to the afflicted. He follows this with three motives to submission to our crooks. May God bless this study.
