Dear Church Family,

We are not forgiven because we forgive, but as we forgive. The ground of all forgiveness is found in the unmerited love of God, but by our attitude toward others we show whether we have made that love our own. Wherefore Christ says, “With what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged.”

White, E. G. (1958). The Faith I Live By (p. 131). Review and Herald Publishing Association.
