Nothing To The World

I just recently read Mother Teresa: Come Be My Light. I didn’t know a whole lot about Mother Teresa, but I was curious.

One of my favorite things about her was her humility. She wanted God to be the focus and get the glory, not her. At one point she wrote:

“I am afraid we are getting too much publicity. A few things I heard this evening have me me feel cold with fear. God preserve us. Please pray for me – that I be nothing to the world and let the world be nothing to me” (152).

In a world of rock star pastors who brag about the amount of followers they have on Twitter, her words are so refreshing and so needed. I wonder in what ways it would honor Jesus if we tried to make ourselves small so He could be bigger?
