Forgetting and Forgiving

Pride nourishes the remembrance of injuries,

Humility forgets as well as forgives them. 

--Robert C. Chapman

"A false balance is an abomination to the Lord,
But a just weight is His delight.
When pride comes, then comes dishonor,
But with the humble is wisdom.
The integrity of the upright will guide them,
But the crookedness of the treacherous will destroy them.

The wicked earns deceptive wages,
But he who sows righteousness gets a true reward.
He who is steadfast in righteousness will attain to life,
And he who pursues evil will bring about his own death.
The perverse in heart are an abomination to the Lord,
But the blameless in their walk are His delight.

The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life,
And he who is wise wins souls."

Proverbs 11:1-3,18-20,30
