Trials Are the Looking Glass Showing Our Faults

Thomas Brooks helps us see how trials refine us:

"By trials, God reveals much of a man’s sinful self to his pious self. When the fire is put under the pot, then the scum appears. So when God tries a poor soul, Oh! how does…

- the scum of pride
- the scum of murmuring
- the scum of distrust
- the scum of impatience
- the scum of worldliness
- the scum of carnality
- the scum of foolishness
- the scum of willfulness

—reveal itself in the heart of the poor creature?

Trials are God’s looking glass, in which His people see their own faults. Oh! that looseness, that vileness, that wretchedness, that sink of filthiness, that gulf of wickedness, which trials show to be in their hearts! “Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction” (Isa 48:10).

From Thomas Brooks, The Mute Christian under the Smarting Rod, Chapel Library, http://www.chapellibrary.org/files/8914/0171/9774/mcut.pdf
