Less of me

He must become more important while my importance decreases-John 3:30 CEV.

It’s all about me is a saying that is all too common in our society, especially in this day and age. There are songs, t-shirts, poems and bumper stickers just to name a few that tell us everything should be centered around us only. As hard as it is to believe people even enter into matrimony with the notion that everything should be carted around or for them.

“All about me” shouldn’t ever come out of your mouth if you are indeed mature as mentioned in Hebrews 5:14 NLT. In Philippians 2:3&4 ESV the Bible instructs us to count others as more significant than ourselves then to look to their interests before our own. If this is how it’s supposed to be done, then we shouldn’t even have time to let those words formulate in our brains.

The more we step outside of ourselves and let God step in (we do this by obeying his laws, precepts and commends {John14:15 NIV} then putting them into practice {Philippians 4:9 TM} and also passing them along to our off springs {Deuteronomy 6:7 NIV}) the more God’s presence and influence reaches those in need. So what are you waiting for, slip off into the sidelines (John 3:30 TM) just as quickly as you made your way to center stage. Or in other words let God be the captain and quarterback.
