The Life and Diary of David Brainerd by Jonathan Edwards

“it cuts and wounds my heart to think how much self-exaltation, spiritual pride, and warmth of temper, I have formerly had intermingled with my endeavors to promote God’s work. Sometimes I long to lie down at the feet of opposers and confess what a poor imperfect creature I have been, and still am. Oh, the Lord forgive me and make me for the future wise as a serpent, and harmless as a dove!”
