_The Lord is good to all: and His tender mercies are over all His works_.–PS. cxlv. 9.
_For every beast of the forest is Mine, and the cattle upon a thousand hills_.–PS. 1. 10.

Maker of earth and sea and sky, Creation’s sovereign Lord and King, Who hung the starry worlds on high, And formed alike the sparrow’s wing; Bless the dumb creatures of Thy care, And listen to their voiceless prayer.
ANON.
I believe where the love of God is verily perfected, and the true spirit of government watchfully attended to, a tenderness towards all creatures made subject to us will be experienced; and a care felt in us, that we do not lessen that sweetness of life in the animal creation, which the great Creator intends for them under our government. To say we love God as unseen, and at the same time exercise cruelty toward the least creature moving by His life, or by life derived from Him, was a contradiction in itself.
JOHN WOOLMAN.
I would give nothing for that man’s religion whose very dog and cat are not the better for it.
ROWLAND HILL.

  • “They only did what God permitted them to do, which enabled me always to keep God in sight… When we suffer, we should always remember that God inflicts the blow. Wicked men, it is true, are not infrequently His instruments; and the fact does not diminish, but simply develops their wickedness. But when we are so mentally disposed that we love the strokes we suffer, regarding them as coming from God, and as expressions of what He sees best for us, we are then in the proper state to look forgivingly and kindly upon the subordinate instrument which He permits to smite us.” – Madame Guyon
