• W. Austin Gardner

secret of all self-oblivion



In all this David evinced great magnanimity. There was no thought of himself or his own interests. He had learnt the secret of escaping from himself in his devotion and care for another. It is the secret of all self-oblivion. Live in another’s life, especially in the interests of your Master, Christ, and you will be freed from the constant obtrusion and tyranny of self.


F. B. Meyer, David: Shepherd, Psalmist, King, Scripture Biographies (London: Morgan and Scott Ltd., 1910), 137.
