Descending into Greatness

Kings 25:22-e, Jeremiah 40-42, Matthew 20:1-28

Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant. Matthew 20:26

Jesus’ disciples were like everyone else – they liked to be at the head of the line. Jesus shared that one cannot rise to greatness, one descends to greatness. In fact, desiring greatness keeps one from reaching it. Jesus lived this out. Actually, he died to serve all of us, and that makes him our Savior. Don’t chase after greatness – you can never catch it. See value (greatness) in others to enjoy what God gives you.
