#11 From my reading…

cover art, Humility by Andrew Murray

from Chapter 11

Humility and Happiness

Let us ask whether we have learned to regard a reproof, just or unjust, a reproach from friend or enemy, an injury or trouble, or difficulty into which others bring us, as above all an opportunity of proving Jesus is all to us, how our own pleasure or honor are nothing, and how humiliation is in very truth what we take pleasure in. It is indeed blessed, the deep happiness of heaven, to be so free from self that whatever is said of us or done to us is lost and swallowed up in the thought that Jesus is all.
