If you know me well you know I am a fan of Andrew Murray. One of my church friends was sharing about this book which she was reading and brought it to me last Sunday. Mickey & I devoured it and I bought my own copy because this is definitely a re-read and underline book.
Chapter 6 Humility in the Life of Jesus ~ "The secret-of which all nature and every person and, above all every child of God, is to be the witness-is that he is nothing but a vessel, a channel, through which the living God can manifest the riches of His wisdom, power, and goodness.......we know that we have nothing but what we receive, and we bow in deepest humility to wait upon God for it."
Chapter 6 Humility for Daily Life ~ "The humble man feels no jealousy or envy. He can praise God when others are preferred and blessed before him. He can bear to hear others praised and himself forgotten, because in God's presence he has learned to say with Paul, "I be nothing" 2 Corinthians 12:11
Chapter 7 Humility and Holiness ~ "Pride can clothe itself in the garments of praise or of penitence."
I would highly recommend this book. Be prepared to see how Humility is so needed, and neglected, if we are truly going to be the light and salt that God has called us to be.
