Going Deeper into Share: Week 5/Day 1

Becoming Less to Become More

Reflection Scripture:

He must increase, but I must decrease.

John 3:30 ESV

Day 1:

Read Judges 7:1-8

How many men did Gideon have to fight with? What did God say about the army? What temptation did God want to prevent?

How many men did God use to save the Israelites from the Midians? How many total did He send away? (Do the math.) What became more evident with fewer men?

Do you have a resource in such great quantity it obscures your vision of God? What is it? What does it represent to you?

Imagine God telling you to become far less, so you could become more for Him. What emotions rise? How do you imagine yourself responding? Why?
