“Nothing in life is comparable to forgiveness. Hate, bitterness and vengeance leave a seared heart and mind, even on the one who takes vengeance as well as on the object of hate. Forgiveness, sympathy and love are balm for heart and mind. Where these virtues exist, the burden, tenseness and worry of life are easily removed. Where forgiveness is, God is.”Harold J. Ockenga, Faithful in Christ Jesus, p 194.
