The mind and compassion of God

"As a handful of sand thrown into the ocean, so are the sins of all flesh as compared with the mind of God."
"Just as a strongly flowing fountain is not blocked up by a handful of earth, so the compassion of the Creator is not overcome by the wickedness of his creatures."
"Someone who bears a grudge while he prays is like a person who sows in the sea and expects to reap a harvest."
St. Isaac The Syrian
