Do you think the injuries you have received from your fellow-man
are more than you have offered to God?
Has your enemy been more base,
more unreasonable, more ungrateful, than you have to the High and Holy One?
Have his offences been more heinous or aggravated,
or more in number, than yours has been against your Creator, Benefactor, and Redeemer?
Have they been more provoking and exasperating
than your sinful conduct has been to him who is the author of all our mercies,
and to whom you are under the highest obligations?
