In our OT passage, we see in Chapter 17 how important it was to put God first. Idolatry was the cause of the exile.
This tied in well with our NT passage....
30 He must increase, but I must decrease.God must be our ultimate focus. He must be our priority. Yes, other things are important. But those good things cannot overshadow the best - God Himself!
