He (Jesus) must become greater. I must become less.
Do more. Get more. Be more. These messages bounce around my life like a pinball machine gone mad. Sometimes the more within my reach isn't the one I should grasp. What if instead...
I do more with Jesus.
I get more of Jesus.
I be more like Jesus.
Trying to follow a long list of rules or live up to never-ending expectations covers my life with a cloud of less-than. I do want to live in a way that honors God. I do desire to encourage and energize my family. But the key for me is not to pray over my multitude of perceived flaws but to pray Lord, Lessen Me.
Less of me makes room for more of Him.
Lord, make me less so my life makes much of You.
What is one way your life needs to be less?
