“He must become greater; I must become less.” John 3:30
Having more time at home as a family has meant many more dishes, less laundry and more time together than ever. We’ve had ample time to watch movies in the evenings and on the weekends. Looking back 4 short months ago, our busy schedules didn’t allow for time to watch a movie as a family or even have consistent family dinners.
What a difference a few months makes. Our family has bonded in ways I couldn’t have never imagined. While there are many positive things that have happened, there have also been difficult times, such as getting on each other’s last nerve.
One way my family has bonded was by watching Christian movies. Last weekend we watched the movie “Greater.” Throughout the movie I couldn’t ignore God’s voice quietly saying “See me there…and over there.” I focused more on the message God was wanting me to hear.
John 3:30 says “He must become greater; I must become less.” I recommend this movie to watch as a family. I also find it important to apply this great message into your own life by taking daily walks and talks with God.
God is not meant to just be acknowledged on Sundays’. He wants our every moment of every day. God becomes greater when we become less about ourselves. He becomes greater when we put other’s needs before our own.
