|Exodus 11-12||Proverbs 10||Matthew 18|
The Greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven
1 At that time the disciples came to Jesus and asked, “Who, then, is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
2 He called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. 3 And he said: “Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. 4 Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.
What is the greatest? That is something I had been wondering on and off for a while It comes to mind everytime I hear the news or talk to a friend about who we are as a country in this world. But is this what Jesus is asking of us?
I Tend to belive that Matthew 18 might be a little diffrent than that. It is about humility and rellying on God. Greatness is about a certain child like faith and atitude towards those around us, about being humble and walking in that humble spirit when it somes to day to day life. It might not be about what I want but about what God wants.
So today I ask you to pray with me on being great at being humble. Not just an individual but as a local churh, as the whole church and as a nation. Lord help us to be humble.
