“God loves a humble soul. It is not our high birth, but our low hearts God delights in.
A humble spirit is in God’s view: ‘To this man will I look, even to him that is poor, and of a contrite spirit,’ (Isa. 66:2).
A humble heart is God’s palace: ‘I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of an humble spirit,’ (Isa. 57:15).
A humble heart glories in this: that it is the presence chamber of the great King.”
