When the Lord asks us to make a change, prioritize or give something up our first reaction probably is not “yes! Sure!”
Most likely we wrestle around with the idea for awhile wondering how we will benefit.
Therein lies the problem. We are concerned with how we will benefit or maybe how others will perceive us. But John the Baptist said that if we make sacrifices for the Lord that HE will benefit.
Our entire purpose is to bring God glory. So instead of making decisions based on ourselves let’s begin making decisions based on the glory it will bring God.
“He must increase, but I must decrease.” John 3:30
