Growth by default

1 Jn 5: 14-21/ Ps 149: 1-2. 3-4. 5 and 6a and 9b/ Jn 3: 22-30

… we belong to God... (1 Jn 5: 19) 

To belong means to be part of and if I am part of something or someone, willingly and joyfully, I gladly contribute to the growth of the whole. I do so because I know that when the whole grows or increases, I who am part of it, automatically grow, naturally increase. On the other hand, if I am on my own, totally and absolutely independent, then everyone else, even God, is a competitor, over whom I must prevail.

He must increase... (Jn 3: 30)
