Reading for Today: On humility

For each of us the Baptist’s words are true: “He must increase and I decrease.” 

He will be infinitely merciful to our repeated failures; I know no promise that He will accept a deliberate compromise. For He has, in the last resort, nothing to give us but Himself; and He can give that only in so far as our self-affirming will retires and makes room for Him in our souls.
