It Sets us Above the Reach of Injuries - Jonathan Edwards

Love to God disposes us meekly to bear injuries from others, because it sets us very much above the injuries of men. …It sets above the reach of injuries from others, because nothing can ever really hurt those that are the true friends of God. Their life is hid with Christ in God; and he, as their protector and friend, will carry them on high as on the wings of eagles ; and all things shall work together for their good (Rom. viii. 28); and none shall be permitted really to harm them, while they are followers of that which is good (1 Pet. iii. 13).


Taken from the book Charity and its Fruits by Jonathan Edwards 1668–1759
