REFLECT: How do you define greatness? Who exhibits greatness in your life?
This passage is fascinating because it demonstrates the drastic difference between God’s definition of greatness in comparison to ours. Like the disciples we often find ourselves arguing over who is the greatest. But, Jesus reminds us greatness is not found in elevating ourselves to a position or status to make ourselves known as great. True greatness is found through using everything you’ve been given to serve others, so God’s Name is honored as great.

“Let your light shine before others, so thatthey may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16)
