I was doing some reading on the plan last week and I come across this statement in a book by A. W. Tozier.
A river grows larger by its tributaries.
I find this statement to be quite profound. Spend some time thinking about it today. Who can you grow larger from by spending time and learning from? Who can you make larger by emptying yourself into? As you go around doing, make sure you are contributing to others in a way that helps them grow larger and do!
Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. (Philippians 2:3, 4 ESV)
