Now there was also a dispute among them, as to which of them should be considered the greatest. And He said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles exercise lordship over them, and those who exercise authority over them are called ‘benefactors.’ “But not so among you; on the contrary, he who is greatest among you, let him be as the younger, and he who governs as he who serves. “For who is greater, he who sits at the table, or he who serves? Is it not he who sits at the table? Yet I am among you as the One who serves.
– Luke 22:24-27
In one sense it is comforting to know that the Apostles argued over greatness. We still do that. But more comforting than that is the fact that Jesus didn’t chastise them for doing so. Instead He told them how to become great in His kingdom.
How can you outdo your peers today in serving? It will be time well spent, as Jesus sees it.
