If

If the praise of others elates me…

if the blame of others depresses me…

if I cannot rest when I am misunderstood,
without defending myself…

if I love to be loved,
more than to give love…

if I loved to be served,
more than serving…

then I know nothing of Calvary love.

Amy Carmichael, IF: p. 59

Make me a Servant, Lord
