A single question

Some followers of John the Baptist were talking to him about his Messianic aspirations.  Jesus' disciples were baptizing more than the Baptist himself.  What's up with that?  And there was more:  people were switching allegiances from John to Jesus.  That's like moving from one church to another in the same city!  People never do that, right?

John was clear in his response.  Crystal clear.
He must increase and I must decrease. (John 3.30)
And this question has stuck with me this week.  How will that play out in my day?  If I could have that same attitude and outlook, how will that affect my conversations, interactions, moments of activity and moments of quiet?

And how would it affect yours?
