Judging God’s Ways?

Kevin DeYoung posts wise advice from Jeremiah Burroughs this morning:

The next time we are about to accuse God in our hearts, or the next time we are tempted to complain about God’s dealings with us, let us consider the wisdom of Jeremiah Burroughs.

I beseech you to consider that God does not deal by you as you deal with him. Should God make the worst interpretation of all your ways towards him, as you do of his towards you, it would be very ill with you. God is pleased to manifest his love thus to us, to make the best interpretations of what we do, and therefore God puts a sense upon the actions of his people that one would think could hardly be (The Rare Jewel of Christian Contentment, 224, emphasis added).
