All the compassions of all the tender fathers in the world compared with the tender mercies of our God would be but as a candle to the sun or a drop to the ocean.
— Matthew Henry
Until we taste the bitterness of our own misery, we will never relish the sweetness of God’s mercy. Until we see how foul our sins have made us, we will never pay our tribute of praise to Christ for washing us… If you would know the heart of your sin, then you must know the sins of your heart!
— William Secker
