I consider all things rubbish, all my achievements and ambitions, present, past and future, if the ultimate end is not for His glory. If I should be a good helper to my husband, it should be for His sake. If I should be a good worker and friend, it should be for His glory, that people could sense His love through me. If I should be a daughter whom my parents would be pleased with, it should be because I want to point the folks to His transforming power in my life. If I should be a caring mother, it should be because He has placed in me a responsibility so great that I could not do anything less than a well-done job. Yes, mediocrity is detestable for He gave His best for me.
He must increase, and I must decrease.
