   He must become greater; I must become less.
    -- John 3:30, New International Version

    One of the greatest shifts a person makes is from immature to mature.  As a child we want to be the center of attention.  We tend to be in the "me" world. It is all about me.  But as we get older(?), as we experience more in life, we realize we are a part, but not the whole.
    Hear the Good News, when we have Jesus become more and put our selfishness aside and become less, we do great things.  Lives change, especially our own.  When was the last time you put Jesus before you?  I hope right now.

   Dear Father in heaven, in my heart and in my life, help me to have Jesus be the greater influence in my life and allow me to become less selfish and self centered.  I know the world does not revolve around, although at times I wish it did and think it does.  Free me for Your direction.  In Jesus' name I ask it. Amen.
