A Desire to be the Greatest…
The desire to be the greatest is used loosely in our world. We’re quick to call or label people who excel as being great and those who really succeed as being the greatest. Someone has rightly said, “The world wants your best, but God wants your all.”
KEY TEXT: Matthew 23:11 “But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant.”
Greatness in God is just the opposite of the world’s concept and definition of greatness. The world considers a person who has great accomplishments, who has people serving and working for him and has vast wealth, power, or influence as being great. The bible’s definition of greatness has nothing to do with possessions, but has more to do with what one does. See Luke 22:24-27. In the Kingdom of God, a person who desires to be great or the greatest, must have a desire or willingness to serve God and others. See Matthew 18:1-4.
