Wed.-Sabbath, 4/13-17/16 Devotion

Wahoo—Sunday is coming in just four days. We will *get* to go to church again! In order to help get us ready, here is the remarkable and ingenious Thomas Watson, from his, "The Picture of a Godly Man" book:

"A humble soul thinks better of others than of himself: 'Let each esteem others better than themselves,' (Php. 2:3). A humble man values others at a higher rate than himself, and the reason is because he can see his own heart better than he can another's. He sees his own corruption and thinks surely it is not so with others; their graces are not so weak as his; their corruptions are not so strong. 'Surely,' he thinks, 'they have better hearts than I.' A humble Christian studies his own infirmities and another's excellencies, and that makes him put a higher value upon others than himself. 'Surely I am more brutish than any man,' (Prov. 30:2). And Paul, though he was the chief of the apostles, still calls himself, 'less than the least of all saints,' (Eph. 3:8)."
