In Kansas City, during the great Gipsy Smith revival years ago, an old preacher came into the room where the Gipsy was sitting after the service. Thousands were being blessed & hundreds saved.
The older minister placed his hands upon the evangelist's head & felt about it. “I am trying to find the secret of your success,” he said.
“Too high! Too high! My friend, you are too high,” Gipsy said. “The secret of whatever success God has given me is not up there but down here,” and he placed his hand upon his heart.
