Here he is reflecting on a sick lady that he had been visiting and ministering to.
“I had much satisfaction in conversing with one that was very ill and very serious. But in a few days she recovered from her sickness and from her seriousness together.” (page 19)Haven’t we all seen this. When people face hardship they are very serious and open to spiritual things. Somehow their interest wains when the problem departs. Even pain only teaches temporary lessons to some people.
Some things never change.
