At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?”
– Matthew 18:1
The simple answer to the disciples question would be “Jesus.” Be that as it may, I find it interesting that Jesus doesn’t chastise the disciples for there (seemingly presumptuous) question. Instead He teaches them an important Kingdom lesson on greatness.
Apparently Jesus wants us to aspire to greatness in His Kingdom, but greatness in His Kingdom is granted on far different terms than in ours.
Aspire to Kingdom greatness on Kingdom terms.
