Quote of the Week: Augustine of Hippo


Few things are more damaging than a grudge, and forgiveness is good for the soul. Release grudges. Breathe deep. Trust God to keep his promises to you.

“You have enemies. . . . Take heed to yourselves: love them. In no way can your enemy so hurt you by his violence, as you hurt yourself if you love him not.”

—Augustine of Hippo
