"Such bruising may help weaker Christians not to be too much discourged, when they see stronger ones shaken and bruised. Thus Peter was bruised when he wept bitterly Matt. (26:33). This reed, till he met with this bruise, had more wind in him than pith when he said,'Though all forsake thee I will not.' The people of God cannot be without these examples. The heroic deeds of those great worthies do not comfort the church so much as their falls and bruises do. " Sibbs The Bruised Reed Banner Pg. 5).
