The Goodness of God Infinite and Everlasting
Psalm 52:1-9
Why boast you yourself in mischief, O mighty man? the goodness of God endures continually.…

There is not so much sin in man as there is goodness in God. There is a vaster proportion between sin and grace than between a spark and an ocean. Who would doubt whether a spark could be quenched in an ocean? Thy thoughts of disobedience towards God have been within the compass of time, but His goodness hath been bubbling up towards thee from all eternity.

(W. Culverwell.)
