Peter said to him, “You will never wash my feet!” Jesus replied, “If I do not wash you, you have no share with me.”—John 13:8 NET
Whatever hinders us from receiving a blessing that God is willing to bestow upon us is not humility, but the mockery of it. A genuine humility will ever feel the need of the largest measures of grace, and will be perfected just in the degree in which that grace is bestowed. The truly humble man will seek to be filled with all the fulness of God, knowing that when so filled there is not the slightest place for pride or for self. — George Bowen.
