Christian Liberty

“For it is a true saying, that a haughty mind often dwells in a coarse and homely garb, while true humility lurks under fine linen and purple.  Let everyone then live in his own station, poorly or moderately, or in splendour;  but let all remember that the nourishment which God gives is for life, not luxury , and let them regard it as the law of Christian liberty, to learn with Paul in whatever state they are, therewith to be content, to know both how to be abased and how to abound, to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need.”

John Calvin
