Jottings – Cultivating A Spirit of Humility


Commenting on Matthew 26:56:


Let us learn from the passage lessons of humiliation and self-abasement. Let us resolve by God’s grace to cultivate a spirit of lowliness, and self-distrust. Let us settle it in our minds, that there is nothing so bad that the best of us may not do it, unless he watches, prays, and is held up by the grace of God. And let it be one of our daily prayers, ‘Hold thou me up, and I shall be safe.’ (Psalm 119:17.)
