Minister: Need of Personal Tenderness
Speaking of the temper requisite to the right discharge of ministerial duty, Payson said, 'I never was fit to say a word to a sinner, except when I had a broken heart myself; when I was subdued and melted into penitency, and felt as though I had just received pardon to my own soul, and when my heart was full of tenderness and pity. No anger, no anger.'
