Point to one who is greater than you are

Too much of the world’s energy is consumed by people drawing attention to themselves.  We are urged: ‘Make a good impression’.  This is fine for some things.  But as a general habit, it creates a culture devoted to the ego and to self-preoccupation. The wise person, on the other hand, looks beyond herself for something or someone greater; wisdom serves bigger values than self.  If someone seeks direction in life, point them to one who is greater than you are, as John the Baptist does. He sends them to Jesus.
