“The really obvious transgressions are the ones that other people commit, while our own sins seem small and insignificant by comparison. It is always, ‘your log, but my splinter’.”                           Dr. Philip Ryken

“To be critical and discriminating is necessary; to be hypercritical is wrong. One should avoid saying what is untrue (Exodus 23:1), unnecessary (Proverbs 11:13), and unkind (Proverbs 18:8).”         William Hendriksen

“A forgiving person is one who, out of a profound sense of being personally forgiven a great debt by God, is quick to ask forgiveness from another, who repudiates anger, bitterness, and a desire for revenge to initiate a loving approach to whoever may have hurt him or her, and who offers to freely forgive and forget the injury caused, with the hope that reconciliation may be achieved.”          Eric E. Wright

Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. (Ephesians 4:32 ESV)
