“The infinite ocean of fatherly love” by Jeremiah Burroughs

“All the love that ever was in any parents towards their children, is but as one drop of the infinite ocean of fatherly love that there is in God unto His people.”

–Jeremiah Burroughs, The Saints’ Happiness, Delivered in Divers Lectures on the Beatitudes (Reprint, Beaver Falls, Pa.: Soli Deo Gloria, 1988), 193–202.
