I just saw this quote in someone’s email today. Love it! It shows how bright some of those “older saints” were.
“No one heals himself by wounding another.” Ambrose of Milan
Every thing we do in this world has the potential to do immeasurable damage to people or bring immeasurable healing to them. The most dangerous among us are those who think they have to hurt others to get what they think makes them whole. The problem is the act of wounding may do even more damage to the one doing the wounding than it does to the one wounded! You don’t find healing by tearing down others, you just find more pain.
The world generates enough damage of its own with out those of us who are seeking to follow Christ adding to it. Live loved and love others the same way he loves you.
