Wilson: humility

Monday, March 26, 2012
    Feast of Harriet Monsell of Clewer, Religious, 1883
    As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace.
    —Ephesians 4:1-3 (NIV)
    The more God raises and exalts good men, the more they abase and humble themselves. They remember with sorrow what they are of themselves, and what they are capable of becoming.
    ... Thomas Wilson (1663-1755), Maxims of Piety and of Christianity, London: Macmillan, 1898, p. 70 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, banish all pride from me.
