Shall He Not Do What He Asks Us to Do?

Shall He say, “Forgive seventy times seven,” and Himself not forgive except in this short life? Shall He command us to “overcome evil with good,” and Himself, the Almighty, be overcome of evil? Shall He judge those who leave the captives unvisited, and Himself leave captives in a worse prison for ever unvisited? Does He not again and again appeal to our own natural feelings of mercy, as witnessing “how much more” we may expect a larger mercy from our “Father which is in Heaven?”

Andrew Jukes (1815-1901)
The Restitution of All Things (1867), page 94
