Point to one who is greater than yourself

Morning: Psalms 5, 6; Genesis 3:1-24; Hebrews 2:1-10
It’s pretty counter-cultural in these days of self-promotion to point beyond yourself to someone greater.  In fact, it would be seen in some quarters as a bad career move, where the whole idea is to be seen as the greatest.  All that goes to say that the spiritual life cannot be a ‘career’ but only a calling.  And the calling of the spiritual life is always to point beyond yourself to one who is greater.  John did it, even though they were looking for him to be ‘The One’.  He just said, “I am not the One”, and stepped aside.
