John Calvin

French theologian and pastor during the Protestant Reformation.
Elisabeth, again, while she praises her, is so far from hiding the Divine glory, that she ascribes everything to God. And yet, though she acknowledges the superiority of Mary to herself and to others, she does not envy her the higher distinction, but modestly declares that she had obtained more than she deserved.More John Calvin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]

The only right stewardship is that which is tested by the rule of love.More John Calvin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
To crave wealth and honor, to demand power, to pile up riches, to gather all those vanities which seem to make for pomp and empty display, that is our furious passion and our unbounded desire.On the other hand, we fear and abhor poverty, obscurity, and humility, and we seek to avoid them by all possible means.More John Calvin quotes [03/29/2018 05:03:36]
