Thought for the day

Rather remain lowly than be honored by government officials or successful businessmen.

The only true and genuine work is hidden; it is a mystery. We must work with much effort and sweat, even when no one understands what we are doing. People only value outward success, which is deadly. They want to do everything according to their own ideas. Rather than fighting for the coming of God’s reign, they try to attack and overcome the world, all in the name of Christ. This is nothing but spiritual arrogance.—Christoph Blumhardt in The Hidden Christ, page 17
