Come join Veteran SGT Steve McFarland TONIGHT's "Healing Through Faith" addition of Warriors for Life (WFL) Virtual Group Support Community Services.
TONIGHT's Topic: "He Must Increase, But I Must Decrease."
Say what? That statement, from the lips of John the Baptist, runs entirely counter to our natural inclination. We are naturally competitive and relentless self-promoters, so placing ourself below someone else isn't in the cards. We collect accolades and titles like they are trophies, demonstrating how great we are. We would be the first to raise our hands to volunteer to be on the planning committee for that greatest monument to humanity, the Tower of Babel. Notice their purpose statement:
They said, “Come, let us build for ourselves a city, and a tower whose top will reach into heaven, and let us make for ourselves a name, otherwise we will be scattered abroad over the face of the whole earth.” (Genesis 11:4), but John the Baptist was different.
