God’s Sabbath Justice will not be Mocked

According to the American Tract Society’s tract “Sabbath Occupations,”
“A pious minister, in his sermon, once spoke of the man in the camp of Israel, who was stoned to death for gathering sticks upon the Sabbath. A thoughtless man present was offended ; and to show his contempt, left the house and began to gather up sticks. When the congregation came out, they found the man dead, with a bundle of sticks in his arms.”
