Greatness. It is what we often aspire to in our careers, in our activities, and even in our homes. We see the disciples asking that question of Jesus… “who will be the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” Jesus had a child come to Him so that they could see what He was saying. Our greatness is not in what we receive… it is in what we can humbly give in service to others. Ask yourself if you need to rethink your strategy to achieve true greatness. Be blessed in your service to Him!
Please copy this blog or the link to this post page to give this verse to family, friends, and co-workers for the Gospel. Ask who they feel is or was the greatest minister of the Gospel. Ask why they feel that way. Listen to their criteria and compare them to the lesson from this verse. Share with them how Jesus described ‘the greatest in His kingdom.’ Continue to Take Time For God’s Word at 18:04 (6:04 pm) and as you see a little child, then recall this verse. You may want to ask this at your family dinner or dinner with friends. What act of kindness or of service did they see today that touched their hearts. It showed great humility but also greatness by the one who gave it. It may bring tears to your eyes. Such acts of great love often do. They show us the best of what we could all be. Find your own humble acts of service in the days to come. You will be great at it!
We give our prayers for ALL leaders and workers across our schools. These may be nurses, crossing-guards, custodians, bus drivers, principals, or more. All have a role to play to keep the schools operating effectively. Many also have an impact on the students by how they perform their jobs. A smile. A kind word. A hand of support. So many ways that we show what’s in our heart. Give them your thanks. Let them know that you appreciate their work and service to our schools and to our children. Stay blessed. Pass it on through humble acts of service which are valued as greatness in God’s kingdom.
