“in the final analysis, forgiveness is an act of faith. By forgiving another, I am trusting that God is a better justice-maker than I am. By forgiving, I release my own right to get even and leave all issues of fairness for God to work out. I leave in God’s hands the scales that must balance justice and mercy.”
- Philip Yancey, What’s So Amazing about Grace?, p. 93
"God's love is an action toward us, not a reaction to us. His love depends not on what we are but on what He is. He loves because He is love."
- David Seamands, Healing Grace, p. 115
