If you ask, why He made so much ado about a worthless creature, raised out of the dust of the ground at first, and had now disordered himself, and could be of no use to Him? We have an answer at hand, because He loved us. If you continue to ask, but why did He love us? We have no other answer but because He loved us; for beyond the first rise of things we cannot go.

—Thomas Manton
