The highest lesson a believer has to learn is humility.
Oh, that every Christian who seeks to advance in a holy life may remember this well!
There may be intense consecration & fervent zeal & heavenly experience, and yet, if it is not prevented by very special dealings of the Lord, there may be an unconscious self-exaltation with it all.
Let us learn the lesson - the highest lesson in the holy life is the deepest humility; and let us remember that it comes not of itself, but only as it is made a matter of special dealing on the part of our faithful Lord & His faithful servant.
Humility isn't thinking meanly of oneself - it isn't thinking of self at all.
The truly humble man does not know he is humble: Moses knew not that the skin of his face shone.
