"The world has had enough of the up-and-comers, the pushers and the shovers, the proud and the confident who would sooner walk over someone than help them up. What the world needs, what the world is looking for, is authentic Christianity. The heart of a Savior, willing to lay down His life to save the world... exemplified by a humble and generous people who are willing to lay down their own agendas in order to love the world back to God." "When we willingly bend and bow, when we embrace God's breaking as our making, when we make ourselves of no reputation, something beautiful happens. The life of Christ is released in us. And the fragrance... well, it is intoxicatingly attractive. But it only comes through brokenness, though the genuine beauty of true humility."
She finishes the chapter with the words I needed to hear today:
"There is only one God." "And it isn't me."
