Be less…so that Jesus might be more

“Jesus said, ‘Truly I tell you, among those born of women no one has arisen greater than John the Baptist; yet the least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he.”

Matthew 11:11

Jesus thought very highly of John. And yet as soon as He was done praising him, He cut him down to size.

Likewise, when we receive great praise for the things we have done, we must remember to keep in mind how small we really are next to God.

John never lost sight of this. And so, in as much as the whole world was willing to sit at his feet…he pointed them towards Jesus.

This is what it means to be less so that Jesus might be more…and this is what we are all called to be.

Prayer
Dear God, thank you for blessing me and increasing me. Keep me humble, and remind me that no matter how great anyone says I am, I am less than the least in Your kingdom. Amen
