Wilson: humility

Sunday, June 17, 2018
    Commemoration of Samuel & Henrietta Barnett, Social Reformers, 1913 & 1936
    [Jesus:] “But you are not to be called ‘Rabbi,’ for you have only one Master and you are all brothers. And do not call anyone on earth ‘father,’ for you have one Father, and he is in heaven. Nor are you to be called ‘teacher,’ for you have one Teacher, the Christ.”
    —Matthew 23:8-10 (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)
    See also Matt. 23:8-10; 2 Chr. 7:13-14; Isa. 35:10; Prov. 16:18-19; Mic. 6:8; Matt. 11:29; 18:3-4; John 13:12-15; 2 Cor. 7:10-11; Eph. 4:1-3; Jas. 4:6-7; 1 Pet. 5:5
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, banish all pride from me.
