Bury an Injury

In speaking of obedience as fruit of love to God, Thomas Watson says this: “There are some sins which are not only near to us as the garment, but dear to us as the eye. If we love God, we shall set ourselves against these, both in purpose and practice. Also in forgiving our enemies…This is hard; it is crossing the stream. We are apt to forget kindnesses, and remember injuries; but if we love God, we shall pass by offences. When we seriously consider how many talents God has forgiven us, how many affronts and provocations He has put up with at our hands, this makes us write after His copy, and endeavour rather to bury an injury than to retaliate it.”
