God and Joy

A selection from a letter by David Kinghorn to his son Joseph Kinghorn, February 23, 1782:

May the love of God be shed abroad in your heart and ours; I’ve oft thought on those words of Dr. Young, a deity believed is joy begun, a deity adored is joy advanced, a deity beloved is joy matured.

The Life and Works of Joseph Kinghorn, by Martin Hood Wilkin, reprinted by Particular Baptist Press, 1995, p38.
