True Humility

While it takes grace to take the low place, it takes more grace to do it in the right spirit. There is such a thing as taking the low place with the spirit of an injured man, and with the feeling that you are a kind of martyr.
True humility, on the other hand, will take the low place cheerfully, and not only submit to the will of God, but agree to the same. A false humility is sure to overdo its part. Such humility seems to be so very humble, that it is at once seen that it is pride in disguise.
True humility cannot only take the low place, but any place, provided the Lord is glorified.
