“He must become greater; I must become less.” (John 3:30, NIV)
For many folks there remains a temptation to want to be first; to be the big kahuna! They like telling great big stories, not for the sake of simply engaging their friends and family, but for the sake of being first. Others like to build great things, things that people have to stand back and admire, and again, it is so they can be first among everyone else. Many of us may have had such an experience in our own lives at one time or another. It seems that it is so human to simply want to be first at least once in a life-time. But, let me encourage you not to worry about such things.
There is a simpler way to live life. Instead of wanting to be first, live in such a matter that you make others first! Do the little things for those around you. Wash the dishes, sweep the floor, make the beds, change the oil in the car and while you are at it vacuum it and wash it too.
Scripture says, “But many that are first shall be last, and the last shall be first.” (Matthew 19:30, KJV).
