 "All the best blessings are on the bottom shelf."

[i]"The best and safest course is to study humility. There ought to be nothing flashy or cock-sure in the Christian. Humility is a poor, threadbare, unpretty and unwelcome guest at the world's table. The man of God, however, ought to see that humility is the spirit [/i][i][color=CC0000]of heaven itself[/color][/i] [i]and [/i][i][color=990000]the mind of Christ.[/color][/i] [i]It is the meek whom God favors with his grace and they will be given their heart's desire. The rest he will feed with husks and not with the rich blessings of his love.[/i]

[i]'He that is down need fear no fall,' declared Bunyan sagely. That is the golden rule. It is the believer's reassurance in times when tempted to envy the proud. [/i][i][color=990000]All the best blessings are on the bottom shelf.[/color][/i] [i]The man who stoops low may be ridiculed by the worldly-wise. But the humble man will be on his feet when others are in the ditch. Then let humility be our study every day that we live."[/i]

-- Maurice Roberts, [u]The Thought of God[/u]

Hi JennRich,
And God said..For thus saith the high and lofty One that inhabiteth eternity, whose name is Holy; I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, etc.
May God show us the where the roots are burried.
Well said.

John Bunyan said

Quote:
'He that is down need fear no fall,'

He that is poor need fear no loss.

 Re: humility

Here's another insightful quote:

[i]"Take away humility from an angel, and he is a devil."[/i] -- Thomas Watson
