Thoughts on Humility

Here are a few great quotes from this book I'm reading called Humility:

"Fill your affections with the Cross of Christ that there may be no room for sin." -John Owen
If I'm focused on Christ and what he's done for me, I'm put in my place and reminded of my need for him.

"Have you realiezd that most of your unhappiness in life is due to the fact that you are listening to yourself instead of talking to yourself?" quoted from Spiritual Depression by Martyn Lloyd Jones. We need to tell ourselves the truth of who we are!

When I am experiencing anxiety, the root issue is that I'm trying to be self-sufficient. (wow - good but convicting reminder).
