    Happy Lord’s Day. Sharing a sobering and edifying quote from Stephen Charnock:

    “He is unlike God, that is hurried with an unruly impetus to punish others for wronging him. God has exercised a long-suffering from the fall of Adam to this minute on inummerable subjects, and shall we be transported with a desire of revenge upon a single injury?... How distant are they from the nature of God, who are in a flame upon every slight provocation, from a sense of some feeble and imaginary honour, that must bloody their sword for a trifle, and write their revenge in wounds and death.”

    *Charnock, Existence and Attributes of God, in Works, 2:544.
