Pristine Grace

As He Sees Fit to Use Us
by Henry Mahan

    We are not desirous of honor, esteem, and applause from men, for "we are what we are by the grace of God."  God can take away what we have as easily as He gave it.  We do not despise and provoke one another with our piety; nor do we want to appear to be wiser, richer in grace, nor more gifted than others; for we are less than the least of the saints.  Nor do we envy the gifts, abilities, or grace of another.  God will enlighten us, equip us, and bless us as He sees fit to use us.
