The height of folly, arrogance, and weakness!
(James Smith's autobiography, "Marvelous Mercy!" 1862)
O to be well pleased with all that my Heavenly Father appoints for me in this valley of tears! Yet, how prone I am . . .
to murmur at the Lord's inscrutable ways,
to call into question His infinite wisdom, and
to arraign His wondrous love at the bar of my poor reason!
This is the height of folly, arrogance, and weakness — and yet I am often guilty of it!
"Oh, a wretched man I am! Who will free me from this life that is dominated by sin and death?" Romans 7:24
