Neill: popularity

Monday, June 6, 2022
    Commemoration of Ini Kopuria, Founder of the Melanesian Brotherhood, 1945
    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)
    See also Gal. 6:3; Matt. 23:6-8; 20:26-28; Mark 10:43-44; Luke 11:43; Rom. 12:16; 1 Cor. 1:27-29; Phil. 2:3
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, may the Spirit of humility ever rule me.
