God's sovereignty!

From Spurgeon's sermon, "The Two Talents"

God is most fond of displaying his sovereignty.

The Lord God will have men know that he has a
right to do what he wills with his own.

Hence it is, that in salvation he gives it to some and not to
others; and his only reply to any accusation of injustice is-
"No, but O man, who are you that reply against God?
Shall the thing formed say to him that formed it,
Why have you made me thus?"

The worm is not to murmur because God did not make it an angel,
and the fish that swims the sea must not complain because
it has not wings to fly into the highest heavens.

God had a right to make his creatures just what he pleased.

The Lord has a right to dispose of places and of gifts,
of talents and wealth, just as seems good in his sight.

Oh! for a spirit that bows always before the sovereignty of God!
