Practicing Constant Humility
Letters like this are why I love reading Jack Miller so much. I can relate to the issue he confesses, but I could learn a lot by how he handles it.
I have meant to write to you earlier, but regrettably my good intentions were wiped out by character weaknesses. I managed to get so overscheduled in the fall that time and energy were pretty much eaten up by constant speaking. It’s now clear to me that my zeal for making Christ known must be tempered by a humble willingness to recognize my limits as a weak person who constantly falls into the temptation of thinking he can do the work of the Holy Spirit.
