What a family has He to bear with!

misty mountains (Letters of John Newton)
"The Lord is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion!" Numbers 14:18 
What a family has He to bear with!
Those whom he has graciously saved, have secret idols in their hearts!
His friends hold a secret correspondence with His enemies!
His children repine against Him, and quarrel one with another!
His servants (ministers) serve themselves!
"But You, O Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness!" Psalm 86:1
