ON HUMILITY

The moderator of a Presbyterian church in Melbourne, Australia, gave J. Hudson Taylor a flattering introduction. When the founder of the China Inland Mission stepped into the pulpit, he quietly said, "Dear friends, I am a little servant of an illustrious Master."

The late A. W. Tozer was once presented to a congregation in similar manner, and his response was, "All I can say is, dear God, forgive him for what he said--and forgive me for enjoying it so much!"
