“..this lovely idea of God.” William Law

william law

“This is God’s unchangeable disposition towards the creation; He can be nothing else, but all goodness towards it because He can be nothing towards the creation but that which He is and was and ever shall be in Himself . . . an eternal unchangeable will to all goodness, and which can will nothing else to all eternity, but to communicate good, and blessing and happiness and perfection to every life, according to its capacity to receive it. Had I one hundred lives, I could with more ease part with them all, by suffering one hundred deaths than give up this lovely idea of God.”

William Law
