Humility is recognizing we can’t give anything to God that He hasn’t already given to us.
If we had not experienced our deep sinfulness and Jesus’ deep forgiveness through the cross, we will not love others well in the midst of their struggles.

The more unworthy you feel yourself to be, the more evidence have you that nothing but unspeakable love could have led the Lord Jesus to save such a soul as yours. The more demerit you feel, the clearer is the display of the abounding love of God in having chosen you, and called you, and made you an heir of bliss.

Underestimation has its uses.
Life produces a different taste each time you take it.
The Word of God bares weight on all ages always.
