“Rather, whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant;

We are on this path because we desire to be ‘great’…we want to be saints and want heaven to be our home. Quite a lofty ambition if it were not for what Jesus did on the Cross for us.
In the above passage Jesus tells us how to make progress on this road. Instead of looking to others to ‘feed’ us and to fulfill our needs. Try getting to know them and meet their needs instead. Help THEM to attain heaven…you might just find that in return your needs will be met also.
