Rest in Humility

Men sigh for the wings of a dove, that they may fly away and be at Rest. But flying away will not help us. ‘The Kingdom of God is WITHIN YOU.’ We aspire to the top to look for Rest; it lies at the  bottom. Water rests only when it gets to the lowest place.”

 

                                                                                  Rev Prof Henry Drummond (1850- 1897), Scottish evangelist, biologist, writer and lecturer.

In other words, seek humility!
