Thomas Watson (c.1620–1686) on God's Mercy

Even the worst taste of God's mercy; such as fight against God's mercy taste of it; the wicked have some crumbs from mercy's table. "The Lord is good to all." Sweet dewdrops are on the thistle as well as on the rose. The diocese where mercy visits is very large. Pharaoh's head was crowned though his heart was hardened.
Thomas Watson, A Body of Practical Divinity (Aberdeen: George & Robert King, 1838), 95.

Found in Spurgeon's The Treasury of David on Psalm 145:9

NKJ Psalm 145:9 The LORD is good to all, And His tender mercies are over all His works.
