We like BIG in Texas and take great pride in the size of our land. Big Tex is the symbol of the State Fair of Texas—the largest in the country. Does smaller make other states lesser in importance? No. (I am aware that some Texans would argue the point.)
We usually equate bigger with better and newer with improved.
The Christian world often applies the world’s perspective to the spiritual. Even if we do not say it out loud, such thoughts are engrained in our thinking—bigger churches are better; starting a new church or ministry is doing something greater for God than serving in an established place; the larger the ministry and the donation, the more God values it; and big-name celebrity Christians can do more to reach people than we no-names can.
