imageCharles Simeon (1759-1836), an English Clergyman knew where his proper place was. 

It is doubtless a most joyful thought that we have redemption through the blood of our adorable Savior.  But I have no less comfort in the thought that He is exalted to give repentance and remission of sins. . . . Repentance is in every view so desirable, so necessary, so suited to honor God, that I seek that above all.  The tender heart, the broken and contrite spirit, are to me far above all the joys that I could ever hope for in this vale of tears.  I long to be in my proper place, my hand on my mouth, and my mouth in the dust. . . . I feel this to be safe ground.  Here I cannot err.

Do we?
