Neill: popularity

Monday, May 28, 2012
    Commemoration of Lanfranc, Prior of Le Bec, Archbishop of Canterbury, 1089
    If anyone thinks he is something when he is nothing, he deceives himself.
    —Galatians 6:3 (NIV)
    Popularity is the most dangerous spiritual state imaginable, since it leads one so easily to the spiritual pride which drowns men in perdition. It is a symptom to be watched with anxiety since so often it has been purchased at the too heavy price of compromise with the world.
    ... Stephen Neill (1900-1984), in The Record, 28 March, 1947, p. 161 (see the book)
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may the Spirit of humility ever rule me.
