Greatness

The beginning of greatness is to be little.
The increase of greatness is to be less,
and the perfection of greatness is to be nothing.

Dwight L. Moody

Amen! How often we forget that. we try to gain a name for ourselves by doing things for Christ but only when we truly become nothing is when we can be something for Christ.

Oh Bethany!! I could ask "where in the world did you find that at?" but I believe that the Lord leads you post the things you do. Always causing me to think - and this one no less. D. L. Moody was a great man of God, and the quote is just so powerful. Can I even grasp it? I must keep trying though.

The picture is absolutely stunning!! Lovely, lovely. :) The tulips are so absolutely gorgeous - don't we have such an awesome God who created all things?? I look at something like that and am like "how can someone NOT believe there is a God?"

Thanks again for ministering to my heart!!

Love you!
Ruth Ann
