God's goodness spreading toward us

"God's goodness is a spreading, imparting goodness. . . . [He] 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 ye my face.' He seeks to us, to seek him. It is strange that heaven should seek to earth, and yet so it is."

Richard Sibbes, Works, VI:113.
