In John 3:30 John the Baptist says of Jesus, “He must increase, but I must decrease” (NKJV). John had a very specific role to play in furthering God’s Kingdom. We all do and God gives us skills and talents to fulfill that role. I was thinking about my skill/talent the other day and just how good I am at it. I was wondering what other people thought of me, if they were impressed by what I can do, and how I could be better. The truth was, I was quite self-absorbed in that moment. Then God quietly reminded me that my talent was not given to me to glorify myself but to glorify Him. I cannot glorify God while I’m glorifying myself.
