Charity and Its Fruits: Christian Love as Manifested in the Heart and Life

July 11, 2011

Zach Nielsen:

J. Edwards:

True Christian humility of heart tends to make persons resigned to the will of God, patient and submissive to his holy hand under afflictions, full of awful [i.e. awe-full] reverence towards the Deity, ready to treat divine things with great respect, and of a meek behavior towards men . . . respectful towards superiors, gentle, easy to be entreated, not self-willed, not envious, but contented with his own condition, of a peaceable and quiet spirit, not disposed bitterly to resent injuries, but apt to forgive.

–Jonathan Edwards, Charity and Its Fruits
