“He must decrease, so I must increase.”
“He who saves his life will lose it, but he who loses…”
“The first shall be last, the last shall be first…”
“How you serve…” We ought to learn how to do a task well.
We ought to train others to do it better than us.
If I do something well, it’s just me doing it.
If I train and lift up 10 others to do something as well as I can, the task now has 10 times the workers, and 10 times more can be done.
Movements that become bigger than one man, one church, always require voluntary, intentional decrease on their part.
