Postscript: Due and Deserved Praise

 

"He who doth but exercise his reason in considering the infinite cost which the glorious God hath bestowed in erecting the stately fabric of heaven and earth, and the wonders discovered in the several creatures which are the inhabitants of the higher and lower house,... will easily grant me this assertion: That this great landlord of the world must needs deserve and expect a considerable rent of honour and service, somewhat suitable to the vast charge He hath been at. That man is the person designed to give Him His due and deserved praise, is the next unquestionable concession, no other of God's visible works being capable of His worship."

 

-- George Swinnock (1627-1673)
