The scripture reading for today is Mark 1:7 (KJV)
“And preached, saying, There ariseth one mightier than I after me, the latchet of whose hoes I am not worthy to stoop down and unloose.”
As I read this, I think how humble John the Baptist was. He prepared the people for Jesus and His ministry, yet John had a ministry God gave him as well.
In today’s world when there are so many people “blowing their own horn”, they don’t take time to listen. There is a reason God gave us two ears and one mouth.
Dear God, Help me learn to listen and only speak when I need to do so. In Jesus Name, Amen.
