Humility by Andrew Murray

8.Our love to God is measured by our everyday fellowship with others and the love it displays.

 

9.Humility toward men will be the only sufficient proof that our humility before God is real.

 

10.The great test of holiness is whether it produces an increasing humility in us.

 

11.The chief mark of counterfeit holiness is its lack of humility.

 

12.There is no pride so dangerous, none so subtle and insidious, as the pride of holiness.

 

13.The highest lesson a believer has to learn is humility.

RETURN TO MAIN

1.It is not sin that humbles us most, but grace.

 

2.Humility, the place of entire dependence on God, is, from the very nature of things, the first duty and the highest virtue of man.  It is the root of every virtue.

 

3.Pride, or the loss of this humility is the root of every sin and evil.

 

4.Humility is the sense of entire nothingness, which comes when we see how truly God is all, and in which we make way for God to be all.

 

5.We must make humility the chief thing we admire in Christ.

 

6.The lesson of humility is one of the chief and highest graces.  It is one of the most difficult to attain, and one to which our first and greatest efforts ought to be directed.

 

7.It is only by the indwelling of Christ in His divine humility that we become truly humble.
