Humility

“That was a fine sermon,” said one to Mr. Bunyan. The good man answered, “You are too late; the devil told me that before I left the pulpit.” The archfiend soon suggests to God’s servants sonic lofty notion, and they are tempted to appropriate to themselves the honor, which belongs to God only. Ah, what a fool I am that, even when I seek to be lowest at the feet of my Lord, I find myself satisfied with my humility! Do we not too often rather mimic humility than actually attain to it?

-Charles Spurgeon
