"Striving for Greatness" —

At that time the followers came to Jesus and asked, "Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?" — Matthew 18:1 (ERV)

Key Thought:

In our dreams as children, we are the greatest. In our professions, we entertain illusions of our greatness. Even when we approach what is greatness in the eyes of others, we know that we have not arrived and we dream of even greater things to do and greater heights to climb.
So surely, the desire of greatness can't be all bad! The lust for greatness is a great motivator. But Jesus said that greatness, like life and so many other things, cannot be obtained by seeking what we desire. Instead, greatness is given when we follow Jesus and choose to live as servants!


Today's Prayer:

Almighty Father, give me the wisdom to value people by Jesus' standard of greatness and not the standard of those who do not know Christ and his sacrifice. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.

My aim for today is to do all I can to keep a positive attitude toward life itself, even though that is hard at times, BUT GOD; God will help us through His Word every day. We must read it and obey it too. I am weak sometimes, and I know I must stay focus to keep this peace in my mind daily.
