Let them not promise themselves more honour or pleasure in the world than Christ had, nor aim at the worldly pomp and grandeur which He was never ambitious of, but always declined, nor affect that power in secular things which He would not assume; but every one that would show himself perfect, an established disciple, let him be as his Master -- dead to the world, and everything in it, as his Master is; let him live a life of labour and self-denial as his Master doth, and make himself a servant of all; let him stoop, and let him toil, and do all the good he can, and then he will be a complete disciple.

--Matthew Henry on Luke 6:40

I want very much to be more like my Master...He's working on me...it's taking a bit of time though. Convicting quote!
