Meyer: finding out God's purpose

Thursday, August 5, 2021
    Feast of Oswald, King of Northumbria, Martyr, 642
    [Jesus:] “For everyone who exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”
    —Luke 14:11 (NIV)
    So long as there is some thought of personal advantage, some idea of acquiring the praise and commendation of men, some aim at self-aggrandisement, it will be simply impossible to find out God’s purpose concerning us.
    ... Frederick Brotherton Meyer (1847-1929), The Secret of Guidance, New York: Fleming H. Revell Co., 1896, p. 10 (see the book)
    See also Luke 14:11; Obad. 1:3-4; Matt. 6:1-5; 2 Cor. 10:5,17-18; Gal. 6:3-4; Jas. 2:5-9
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, purge me of arrogance.
