“Forgiveness is the name of love practiced among people who love poorly. The hard truth is that all people love poorly. We need to forgive and be forgiven every day, every hour increasingly. That is the great work of love among the fellowship of the weak that is the human family."
- Henri J.M. Nouwen
“Our souls may lose their peace and even disturb other people’s, if we are always criticizing trivial actions - which often are not real defects at all, but we construe them wrongly through our ignorance of their motives.” - Saint Teresa of Avila
Brant Hansen challenges us to surrender our anger due to the fact that we cannot totally understand the motives of others and we cannot always trust that our own hearts won’t deceive us. What does it mean that your own heart can deceive you? In light of the fact that we are ignorant of motives and our hearts can deceive us, why should we question our own anger?
