Old Lutheran Quote of the Day

As soon as the Holy Ghost enters into the heart of an individual, he becomes smaller and more modest.  He no longer knows anything about himself in which he can boast, and he no longer despairs on account of his sins.  He is insignificant in his own eyes, but he recognizes how great is the love of God - the patience of the Father, the redemption of Christ, and the comfort of the Holy Ghost.  -- C. F. W. Walther, God Grant It! p. 460.

That first sentence has ambiguity in it that messed me up for a minute!
