Charnock On The Goodness of God: Part 2

Charnock continues his meditation on God's goodness by offering the following statement:

"God only is infinitely good. A boundless goodness that knows no limits, a goodness as infinite as his essence, not only good, but best; not only good but goodness itself, the supreme inconceivable goodness. All things else are but little particles of God, small sparks from this immense flame, sips of goodness to this fountain."
Stephen Charnock, The Existence and Attributes of God, 211.
