"He must increase, but I must decrease."
John 3:30



Have YOU considered how less could be best in YOUR life?
If I complain less, I can praise Him more.
If I hurry less, I can enjoy the present moment more.
If I criticize less, I can encourage more.
If I judge less, I can love more.
If I talk less, I can listen more. 
If I want less, I can give more.
If I condemn less, I can forgive more. 
If I doubt less, I can believe more.
If I fear less, I can receive more. 


Isn't that beautiful?

Dear Lord, please help me this week to put YOU first in all I do.

  10. Lois, I love the door hanging picture thing! He is teaching me some "less-ons" on that word already, believe me. I agree in prayer with you, may we be found faithful as He is faithful. In His Grace, Dawn
