Even Reeds Need Bruising - Richard Sibbes

After conversion we need bruising so that reeds may know themselves to be reeds, and not oaks. Even reeds need bruising, by reason of the remainder of pride in our nature, and to let us see that we live by mercy.

Taken from the book The Bruised Reed by Richard Sibbes 1630
