“As you contemplate the cross of Christ, you should be overwhelmed with the oceans of grace you have received from the Lord.  Even when others commit pools or even lakes full of sin against you, you should be gracious to them because of those oceans of grace you have received.  ‘Be kind to them,’ Jesus would say, ‘not because then deserve it, but because I have been so kind to you.'”

John Crotts, Graciousness: Tempering Truth with Love.  Grand Rapids, MI: Reformation Heritage Books, 2018, pages 69-70.
