Exodus (part nine)

When a person’s heart is hardened toward God, few things will effectively penetrate it. They will not listen to reason, they will not consider evidence, and they will not tolerate discussions of the supernatural. Moreover, a person with a hard heart will not consider the harmful repercussions that their actions might have on others. When God wants to get the attention of such hard-hearted individuals, He usually chooses tools such as inconvenience and pain. But watch out: others in their orbit might get caught in the crosshairs, suffering collateral damage.
