Striving for Greatness –

Read Mt 18.1-5, Mk 9.33-37, Lk 9.46-48 – Have you ever wanted to be great? I mean like, be the boss, or famous, the most liked, or something like that? I don’t know about you but I have had this ambition all my life and so did the disciples. Now for the record, greatness in the world’s eyes is not all it’s cracked up to be and Jesus let’s His disciples know it. He says, “Whoever humbles himself like this child ​– ​this one is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven.” Now the world is having none of that! But who’s eyes are we trying to be great in, the world, each other’s, or God’s? Now that really defines greatness, doesn’t it? Like beauty, greatness is in the eyes of the beholder and there is only One who holds everything. Who’s eyes are we trying to be great in?
