Humility From The Desk of Dr. Bob

When we first started our group, I posted on the blog the quote defining humility that Dr. Bob had as a plaque on his desk.

It is a beautiful quote! At Aidel’s request, I am reposting it as a picture:

Here it is again, not as a picture:

Humility is:

Perpetual quietness of heart.

It is to have no trouble.
It is never to be fretted or vexed, irritable or sore;
to wonder at nothing that is done to me, to feel nothing
done against me.

 

It is to be at rest when nobody praises
me, and when I am blamed or despised,

it is to have a blessed home in myself

where I can go in and shut the door

and kneel to my Father in secret and

be at peace, as in a deep sea of calmness,

when all around and about is seeming trouble.

from “Dr. Bob and the Good Old timers”, page 222, first written
by Andrew Murray, a So. African religious leader, ca. 1828-1917.

I highly recommend reading the book. In fact, who would be interested in reading the book during our group?

Please let me know.

Enjoy!

With blessings for recovery & peace,

Shira
