Love and Humility

Without true humility all religion is nothing. All prayer without it is in vain. Our Lord Jesus CHRIST is that book, out of which this is best learnt; as who is indeed a most perfect mirror unto us of all virtues and graces.
Look on his life, and you shall find it made up of nothing but love and humility. Look on his doctrine, and you shall see it to be mere wisdom and truth; a doctrine consisting not in words, but in power; not in shadows, but in the substance of the things that we are taught of him.
[John Wesley]
Luke 18:14 ...  I tell you, this man went down to his house justified rather than the other: for every one that exalteth himself shall be abased; and he that humbleth himself shall be exalted.
Philippians 2:8 ... And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.
Psalm 113:5-6 ... Who is like unto the Lord our God, who dwelleth on high,  Who humbleth himself to behold the things that are in heaven, and in the earth!
Proverbs 22:4 ... By humility and the fear of the Lord are riches, and honour, and life.❤
