Not. about. me.

It is the bridegroom who marries the bride, and the best man is simply glad to stand with him and hear his vows. Therefore, I am filled with joy at his success. Jn. 3:29

John the Baptist got it. His job was to point people to Jesus, to support Jesus’ mission, to echo Jesus’ message, and to rejoice when people became Jesus’ disciples. Not. About. John. John the Baptist defines his own role and the role of any follower of Christ who leads others: best man. Supporting role. All. About. Jesus.

Lord, help leaders and aspiring leaders to deflect glory and focus toward You.
