“Forgive us our debts as we also our debtors. Let us say this sentence with sincerity, because it is an alms in itself. Sins that oppress and bury us cannot be termed trifles! What is more minute than drops of rain?
Yet they fill the rivers. What is more minute than grains of wheat? Yet they fill the barns. You note the fact that these sins are rather small,
but You do not take note that there are many of them.
In any case, God has given us a daily remedy for them.” [Sermon 205.1]
