“Nothing humbles like mercy” by Thomas Brooks

“Mercies make a humble soul glad, but not proud. A humble soul is lowest when his mercies are highest; he is least when he is greatest; he is lowest when he is highest; he is most poor when he is most rich.

Nothing melts like mercy, nothing draws like mercy, nothing humbles like mercy. The voice of mercy is, ‘Remember what lately thou wert, and what now thou art, and be humble.’”

–Thomas Brooks, “The Unsearchable Riches of Christ,” in The Complete Works of Thomas Brooks, Volume 3, ed. Alexander Balloch Grosart (Edinburgh; London; Dublin: James Nichol; James Nisbet and Co.; G. Herbert, 1866), 11.
