Regarding Humility

20130718-184604.jpg

Wanted to share this cool quote I found yesterday. Enjoy:

“Humility is perfect quietness of heart. It is to expect nothing, to wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing done against me. It is to be at rest when nobody praises me, and when I am blamed or 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, and am at peace as in a deep sea of calmness, when all around and above is trouble.”
― Andrew Murray

  2. Andrew Murray…. I kept hoping I’d run into his quotes when writing on humility. Many years ago I had started collecting his quotes on humility and even had his book on it (not sure what I did with it) can’t find the quotes. I was SO happy to see you post this quote from him 🙂

    A deep sea of calmness… regardless of all the trouble around me! I LOVE this…

    Thank you so much for sharing this!!

    • I have to say I don’t think I’d heard of him before. I looked him up after finding the quote and was so surprised that he had written so much, and was so influential, and yet I’d never heard of him! I’m excited to read more of his work. I’m glad to have found this one for you!

  3. I’ve told my boy humility is when you bow your heart.
