Their Mercies Were But Bitter-Sweets - Thomas Brooks

It is true, Abimelech was rich as well as Abraham, and so was Laban rich as well as Jacob, and Saul was a king as well as David, and Julian was an emperor as well as Constantine; but it was only Abraham, Jacob, David and Constantine, who had their blessings blessed unto them; all the rest had their blessings cursed unto them (Prov. 3:33; Mal. 2:12) They had many good things, but they had not 'the good will of him that dwelt in the bush' with what they had; and therefore all their mercies were but bitter-sweets unto them.
