A Quote from Clay Werner

“When we are provoked… we should not seek revenge, but should remain calm and grieve more that their sin is against God than it is against us. Anguish should characterize us more than anger. Our internal disposition, no matter how deep the wound and how constant the hurt, should always be one of love. We should be willing to suffer the loss of our own peace or property rather than defend ourselves or respond in kind. Our love for the incomprehensibly glorious God should make us meek and humble towards others; our love for the immeasurably wise God should make us submit to his sovereign hand, knowing that all things are under His control–even the hurts we endure and the difficulties we walk through.”
