All The Wrongs Done To Us Are But Trifles

“Alas, the wrongs done to us are but trifles, compared with our injuries done to God; where others have wronged you once, you have wronged God a thousand times. Methinks the patience of Christ towards you, should melt your hearts into an ingenuous easiness to forgive others, especially, considering that an unforgiving spirit is a dreadful sign of an unforgiven person.”

— John Flavel, “England’s Duty”, pg. 83
