A Voice from the Past - Thomas Watson

We aim at God’s glory when we are content to be outshined by others in gifts and esteem, so that his glory may be increased. A man that has God in his heart, and God’s glory in his eye, desires that God should be exalted; and if this be effected, let who will be the instrument, he rejoices.

Thomas Watson, 1620-1684, A Body of Divinity, 2: Introduction, 1: Man's Chief End (p. 16)

What is the right attitude toward good work done by others? How do we cultivate this attitude?
