The ways of God go down into microscopic depths as well as up into telescopic heights. . . So with mind; the ways of God go into the depths yet unrevealed to us:  He knows His horses and dogs as we cannot know them, because we are not yet pure sons of God.  When through our sonship, as Paul teaches, the redemption of these lower brothers and sisters shall have come, then we shall understand each other better.  But now the Lord of Life has to look on at the wilful torture of multitudes of His creatures.  It must be that offences come, but woe unto that man by whom they come!  The Lord may seem not to heed, but He sees and knows.
