Hidden Treasures

The Bible is much more than a book of religion.

Humility

“Humility is perfect quietness of heart.
It is never to be irritated or vexed or disappointed.
It is to expect nothing and to wonder at nothing done against me.
It is to be at rest where nobody praises me,
And where I am blamed and despised.
It is to have a blessed home in the Lord
Where I can go in and shut the door
And kneel to my Father in secret.
It is to be at peace as in a deep sea of calmness
Where all around and above is trouble.”

– Andrew Murray

Back in  1949 I visited Haiti for the summer.  One of the single missionary ladies wrote this in my autograph book. It deeply impacted me.
