Recently, for the second time, I came upon this quote while studying for my Sunday School lesson. It spoke to my heart (both times) and I felt it might be a blessing to others as well. It is in reference to Matthew 11:29, where Jesus says, "I am meek and lowly in heart."
Here is the quote, by Walter Wright:
“What an astonishingly wonderful statement! The One who made the worlds, who flung the stars into space and calls them by name, who preserves the innumerable constellations in their courses, who weighs the mountains in scales and the hills in a balance, who takes up the isles as a very little thing, who holds the waters of the oceans in the hollow of His hand, before whom the inhabitants of the earth are as grasshoppers, when he comes into human life finds Himself as essentially meek and lowly in heart.”
