with water, but among you stands one whom you do not know; although he comes after me, I am not worthy to untie the strap of his sandal.” This happened in Bethabara beyond the Jordan, where John was baptizing.
I f we could answerI f we could answertruthfully the question,“Who are you?” like John,we will spare ourselveswith many heartaches thatcome from false knowledgeof the self like desires andambitions that spring fromour bloated self-concept.
We are able to concentrateon our core strengths andavoid our weaknesses.With clarity of the selfcomes great possibilities.We can do great things nomatter what role we arecalled to play.
It’s not tobe at the center of thingsthat matters but doingyour part conscientiouslyand faithfully. John whomno other man born of awoman could surpass wasgreat because he knew hisrightful place in the greaterscheme of God.
