Edwards on Humility

19 Apr

There was no part of creature-holiness that I had so great a sense of its loveliness, as humility, brokenness of heart, and poverty of spirit; and there was nothing that I so earnestly longed for. My heart panted after this–to lie low before God, as in the dust; that I might be nothing, and that God might be all, that I might become as a little child.
