Never have I been so sensible

(Jonathan Edwards)

"I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my eye sees You. Therefore I abhor myself, and repent in dust and ashes!" Job 42:5-6

"Surely every man walks in a vain show!" Psalm 39:6

Never have I been so sensible — of how vain a creature man is, what a leaf driven by the wind, what dry stubble, what poor dust, a bubble, a shadow, a nothing, and more vain than nothing!

And never have I been so sensible — of what a vain and vile and helpless creature I am — and how much I need God's help in everything.

"Hold me up, and I shall be safe!" Psalm 119:117
