Should we emulate George Muller?

    This is perhaps an odd question, I know. But should we strive to follow the example of George Muller?

    (if you don't know who he is, Google him)

    Since I was a little boy, I have heard and read many references to his life and mininistry and the great faith he exhibited. However, I have never seen anyone do what he did in practice, such as refusing to accept a salary, never articulating a need, never asking a man for help, etc.

    I'm not arguing that he wasn't a godly man. I'm wondering, though, why we hold him up as a man of great faith if we wouldn't agree with his methods and practices.

    What say you?

    I loved reading his biography when I was young, and have always wanted to get into his story more but never seemed to have found time yet.
    To have that faith, to be pure enough to be able to freely ask of God with a clear conscious!
