Jottings – Better To Suffer Wrong Than To Inflict Wrong


“The Christian is the man who reasons that it is far better to suffer wrong than to inflict wrong (1 Corinthians 6:7). Sweet reasonableness is an essential ingredient of true happiness. Now such big-heartedness, such forbearance, the patient willingness to yield wherever yielding is possible without violating any real principle, must be shown to all, not only to fellow-believers.”
