Blake: the glory of Christianity

Thursday, October 22, 2020
    A man’s wisdom gives him patience; it is to his glory to overlook an offense.
    —Proverbs 19:11 (NIV)
    The glory of Christianity is to conquer by forgiveness.
    ... William Blake (1757-1827), The Complete Poetry and Prose of William Blake, University of California Press, 2008, p. 201 (see the book)
    See also Pr. 19:11; Ex. 23:4-5; Pr. 25:21; Matt. 5:43-44; 6:14-15; 18:21-22; Mark 11:25; Luke 6:27-28; Rom. 12:14; Col. 3:13
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, implant a forgiving heart in me.
