Humility is the frame of mind which we should labor and pray for, if we would not be offended.  If we find any of Christ’s sayings hard to understand, we should humbly remember our present ignorance and believe that we shall know more by and by.  If we find any of His sayings difficult to obey, we should humbly recollect that He will never require of us impossibilities and that, what He bids us do, He will give us grace to perform. – J. C. Ryle (1816-1900), commenting on John 6.53-61.
