A Matter of Reputation
A.W. Tozer once wrote, "The meek man is not a human mouse afflicted with a sense of his own inferiority. Rather, he may be in his moral life as bold as a lion, but he has stopped being fooled about himself. He has accepted God's estimate about his own reputation. He knows he is as weak and helpless as God has declared him to be, but paradoxically, he knows, at the same time, that he is, in the sight of God, more important than angels. In himself, nothing; in God, everything. That is his motto!"
