Humility: The Least of All the Saints
By Thomas Brooks | Edited by Dustin Benge
Thomas Brooks said, “Oh! Labor every day to be more humble and more low and little in your own eyes.” A significant concern for Brooks was how believers viewed themselves after they became Christians. After all, inheriting eternal life, gaining the riches of grace, being in favor with God may cause the recipient to be puffed up with pride, much like the Pharisees and religious leaders of the New Testament. But for Brooks, the true Christian is more willing to wash the feet of others than to have his feet washed. The believer who desires to walk in humility views themselves through the lens of Christ, who bore the cross in shame and disgrace to purchase salvation for sinners. A humble heart serves. A humble heart loves. A humble heart recognizes that not even a crumb of mercy is deserved. You are about to embark on a journey of the soul. Brooks enters every room of your heart and applies Scripture to clean out the cobwebs of bitterness, pride, and self-righteousness. You will be challenged, changed, and connected to the fountain from which all humility flows.
