Theological Reflection- Meekness & Gifts (Calvin)

"The only way by which you can ever attain true meekness, is to have your heart imbued with a humble opinion of yourself and respect for others." -John Calvin

"But Scripture...,reminds us, that whatever we obtain from the Lord is granted on the condition of our employing it for the common good of the Church, and that, therefore, the legitimate use of all our gifts is a kind and liberal communication of them with others."- John Calvin

Institutes of the Christian Religion, 1559
