“Humility” by Andrew Murray. This characteristic is at the heart of who Jesus Christ is.

  • The humble man: “He can bear to hear others praised and himself forgotten…” (47)
  • “In striving after the higher experiences of the Christian life, the believer is often in danger of aiming at and rejoicing in what one might call the more human virtues….While the deeper and gentler, the more divine and heavenly graces are scarcely thought of or valued. These virtues are those which Jesus first taught upon earth–because He brought them from heaven–those which are more distinctly connected with His cross and the death of self–poverty of spirit, meekness, humility, lowliness.” (47-48)
  • “…it is not sin that humbles us most, but grace.” (6)
