Psalm 100:3

“‘Man, know thyself,’ is a wise aphorism, yet to know our God is truer wisdom; and it is very questionable whether a man can know himself until he knows his God. Jehovah is God in the fullest, most absolute, and most exclusive sense, he is God alone; to know him in that character and prove our knowledge by obedience, trust, submission, zeal, and love is an attainment which only grace can bestow.”

– Charles H. Spurgeon, from The Treasury of David, p. 415.

One response to “Psalm 100:3

  1. Great quote. Seems like when we aim to just “know ourselves” we as humans tend to become either puffed up, or depressed. But knowing God (and trying to see ourselves through His eyes) fills us with both humility and joy, a wonderful combination.
