pride goeth before...

so i was all prideful about my brilliant posting yesterday about making God bigger and thinking that i should most likely at any moment get a call from lifeway about publishing a book. the working title would be “brilliant-lea”. or “wise-lea”. something along those lines....

then last night as i was pondering my day and what i had done to make Him bigger... this verse came to mind (sometimes knowing Scripture is a real humility reminder)

luke 1:46 (the magnificant)

And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord...

magnify (from strong’s concordance)

1) to make great, magnify

  1a) metaph. to make conspicuous

2) to deem or declare great

  2a) to esteem highly, to extol, laud, celebrate

in other words... to make bigger. 

i hate it when mary upstages me.
