Not sure who owns this but would love to give them credit

“A truly Christian love, either to God or man, is a humble, brokenhearted love. The desires of the saints, however earnest, are humble desires. Their hope is a humble hope. And their joy, even when it is unspeakable and full of glory, is a humble, brokenhearted joy, and leaves the Christian more poor in spirit and more like a little child and more disposed to a universal lowliness of behaviour.”

Jonathan Edwards, The Religious Affections
