A Heartening Quote

06Mar09

This quote, especially coming from John Calvin, makes me feel a little better about having a hard time interpreting and applying some passages of Scripture:

In our daily reading of Scripture we come upon many obscure passages that convict us of ignorance. With this bridle God keeps us within bounds, assigning to each his “measure of faith” [Rom 12:3] so that even the best teacher may be ready to learn. (Institutes, III.2.4)
