• “False humility and morbid introspection are, in fact, the opposite of brokenness, as they reveal a preoccupation with self, rather than Christ.” – Nancy Leigh DeMoss

Joy and Strength 10/24

Your life is hid with Christ in God.  Col. iii. 3.

Put on therefore a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, longsuffering; forbearing one another, and forgiving each other; even as the Lord forgave you so also do ye.
Col. iii. 12-13 (R. V.).

It is not the deed we do,
Though the deed be never so fair,
But the love that the dear Lord looketh for.
Hidden with holy care
In the heart of the deed so fair.
Harriet McEwen Kimball.

THESE are duties which belong to us alike, whatever our outward lot be, whether rich or poor, honored or despised, amid outward joys or sorrows. For as our life is hidden in Christ, so have we all an outward and an inward, a hidden life. Outwardly, we seem busied for the most part about common things, with trivial duties, worthless tasks. Inwardly we are, or ought to be, studying how, in all, to please God, walking in His sight, doing them in His Presence, seeking to know how He would have them done. So amid trivial things we may be, nay men are, in every station of life, pleasing God, that is, leading angels’ lives, in that they are doing His will on earth, as the angels in heaven. They are “servants of His, doing His pleasure.”
Edward B. Pusey.
