“God’s goodness is a spreading, imparting goodness. . . . God is more willing to bestow good than we are to ask it. He is so willing to bestow it that he becomes a suitor to us, ‘Seek my face.’ He seeks us, to seek him. It is strange that heaven should seek earth, and yet so it is.”
Richard Sibbes, Works (Edinburgh, 1983), VI:113.
