"God sets people up and brings people down. So the people who are raised up mustn't get fat heads, and the people who aren't raised up mustn't get discouraged. If only Joseph's brothers had fastened on this truth, they would have saved themselves and their whole family much heartache.
Someone expressed this truth in a little couplet: 'It takes more grace than I can tell, to play the second fiddle well.' That's the hardest position to play."
