"One day, in this woman's hearing, something was said to a younger helper which almost drew from her a flashing, angry remark. But at that moment, a word was spoken to her inwardly: 'See in this, a chance to die.'
"And though spoken inwardly, it was far more clearly heard than many a word addressed to the outward ear.
"'See in this'-- this provoking, this rebuke that should not have been-- 'a chance to die.' To self, and the pride that comes from defending self.
"'See in anything'-- anything that rouses you to claim your 'rights', or even to consider them at all-- 'a chance to die.'
"Welcome anything that calls you to your only true position: 'I have been crucified with Christ...' (Galatians 2:20).
