Gracious Gratitude – Chuck Colson

Edwards [Jonathan Edwards] calls the deeper, primary form of thankfulness “gracious gratitude.” It gives thanks not for goods received, but for who God is: for His character—His goodness, love, power, excellencies—regardless of favors received. And it’s real evidence of the Holy Spirit working in a person’s life.

The Freedom of Humility – Jonathan Edwards

Nothing sets a person so much out of the devil’s reach as humility, and so prepares the mind for true divine light without darkness, and so clears the eye to look on things as they truly are.
