The Lovingkindness of the Lord

The lovingkindness of the Lord is a topic that can be reached by the babe in grace, and yet will not be superfluous to the most advanced. There are topics in Scripture so profound and surrounded with such metaphysical difficulties, and rendered so much more perplexing by the wisdom, or the unwisdom, of divines, that one might almost say to the Christian thinker, “You may pass those by, for you will never get much out of them; the quartz is too hard; there is too little gold to pay for breaking up.” But when you come to this subject the unskilled convert may sit down and meditate on the lovingkindness of God, and be edified; while at the same time the most proficient Scholar in the school of Christ shall find something fresh and new every time he meditates thereon.
