From Oswald Smith in The Man God Uses:
On my 38th birhday, I prayed this prayer: "Lord, make me a man after Thine own heart." I saw as I had never seen before, that the big things was not the work I was doing, the books I was writing, the sermons I was preaching, the crowds that gathered, nor the success achieved; but rather the life I was living, the thoughts I was thinking, heart holiness, practical righteousness; in a word: my transformation, by the Spirit, into Christ-likeness.
