Thoughts for each day from the Scriptures and the eight volumes of the writings of George Fox

So Doth the Heavenly Father
         I drew them with cords of a man, with bands of love.         
         (Hosea 11:4)

  No man after he hath beaten his child, hateth him ever afterwards, but loveth him, if he repent and amend; so doth the eternal Father. And if a child be fallen down into the dirt, he doth not go and tumble him more into the dirt or into the ditch and there let him lie in the dirt and ditch, but takes him out and washes him; and so doth the heavenly Father, who leads his children by his hand, and dandles them upon his knee. And so, all that be called fathers in the truth, or mothers, their tenderness should be the same to all little children in the truth.
  (George Fox)
