Who Is Greatest? – Good News for October 2

2 10 2009

Matthew 18:1-5, 10

The disciples approached Jesus and said, “Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven?”

He called a child over, placed it in their midst, and said, “Amen, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will not enter the Kingdom of heaven. Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven. And whoever receives one child such as this in my name receives me.”

“See that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that their angels in heaven always look upon the face of my heavenly Father.”

The Daily Path: Who is the greatest? It feels as if the pursuit of being the greatest is all we try to accomplish in this society of ours. But society’s definition of greatest is not the same as the one Jesus shared that day.

Room to Chat: Join me for a moment reflecting on our pursuit of “greatness”. Let’s be honest with ourselves.
