Cultivating True Humility-2

Johann Gerhard has encouraged us to cultivate true humility, first, by considering our lowly condition as human beings and, second, by considering the example of Jesus Christ Himself. In this meditation, Gerhard points us to lilies and mountain tops to show how God’s grace flows downwards, not upwards.
