Indeed, the Strangest Flower of All

Humility is a strange flower; it grows best in winter weather, and under storms of affliction.

Samuel Rutherford (1600-1661)

The Gifts of Christ

I used to think that God’s gifts were on shelves one above the other and that the taller we grew in Christian character the more easily we could reach them. I now find that God’s gifts are on shelves one beneath the other and that it is not a question of growing taller but of stooping lower.
