Pity

In His love and in His pity He redeemed them.

ISAIAH 63:9


Like as a father pitieth his children, so the Lord pitieth them that fear Him.

PSALMS 103:13


GOD only knows the love of God:

Oh, that it now were shed abroad

In this poor stony heart;

For love I sigh, for love I pine;

This only portion, Lord, be mine,

Be mine this better part.

CHARLES WESLEY


DON'T measure God's mind by your own. It would be a poor love that depended not on itself, but on the feelings of the person loved. A crying baby turns away from its mother's breast, but she does not put it away till it stops crying. She holds it closer. For my part, in the worst mood I am ever in, when I don't feel I love God at all, I just look up to His love. I say to Him, "Look at me. See what state I am in. Help me!" Ah! you would wonder how that makes peace. And the love comes of itself; sometimes so strong, it nearly breaks my heart.

GEORGE MACDONALD


He does not love us because we art so lovely, but because He always loves what He pities.
