It Is Better... cry in repentance than to laugh in sin. be pricked by the sword of truth than to be   

   protected by the shield of error. die for right than to live for wrong. see through the darkness than to be blind in the 

   light. give grace than to sell favor. be sick in love than to be healthy in hatred. be a slave of the Savior than mastered by Satan. be born ugly than to live that way. lead one from darkness than live in darkness 

   with him. extend a hand than to swing a fist. speak a kind word than regret speaking. be hated for right than to be loved for doing 

   wrong. accept the hard truth than believe an easy lie.
