{On a quote from a sermon.}

“the closer we live to God, the smaller everything else becomes”

With anything truly great, its greatness is from the greatness of God; and God created all things, so the closer you are to God, the greater everything becomes. Things that are “else”, other than of God (sin), whatever is great in them also becomes greater, but false greatness disappears.

For example, a Christian can appreciate the skill and dexterity of a thief, and glorifies God, the Creator of all things. The sin of theft, which the thief thinks is so glorious, is seen for the vile nothingness that it is when one turns to God.
