    Humility is no less useful in regulating the conduct of ministers towards the Christian people, by keeping them from affecting dominion, and assuming those airs of authority which, instead of exalting their office and securing respect for their persons, uniformly tend to provoke resistance to the former, and to breed contempt for the latter.
