Law: goodness towards all

Tuesday, April 19, 2022
    Commemoration of Alphege, Archbishop of Canterbury, Martyr, 1012
For the LORD is good and his love endures forever;
    his faithfulness continues through all generations.
    —Psalm 100:5
    As the light of the sun has only one common nature towards all objects that can receive it, so God has only one common nature of goodness, towards all created nature, breaking forth in infinite flames of love, upon every part of the creation, and calling everything to the highest happiness it is capable of.
    ... William Law (1686-1761), Christian Regeneration [1739], in Works of Rev. William Law, v. V, London: G. Moreton, 1893, p. 156 (see the book)
    See also Ps. 100:5; 31:19; 33:5; 34:8; Isa. 63:7; Matt. 7:11; Luke 6:35; 1 John 4:8
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are love.
