Truth Brooks No Delay

The saying of the old German poet that "The mills of God grind slowly," is often repeated, and this thought has no doubt helped some of us, now and then, to practise a kind of enforced patience which accepts a situation we have seemed too stupid or too ignorant to handle; nevertheless, it is competent to convey, and is constantly encouraging a subtle and pronounced error.

God has no occasion to bide His time that He may the more coolly and calculatingly o'erwhelm His enemies; He administers no slow vengeance upon any body or any thing, and he would not encourage us to grit our teeth and endure injustice and iniquity with the assurance that ultimately He will, in His own time, annihilate the evil-doer.
