Greatness Defined

in Obedience/Discipleship Service/Servanthood

Hey, this is Ron Moore with today's Bible Minute.

In Matthew 18:1-5 Jesus defines "greatness":

"[Jesus] called a little child to him, and placed the child among them. And he said: 'Truly I tell you, unless you change and become like little children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore, whoever takes the lowly position of this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. And whoever welcomes one such child in my name welcomes me.'"

Greatness is not about power or influence or the number of followers you have on social media. Jesus said that the kingdom is made up of those who "become like little children."

Becoming great is becoming small. Becoming great is taking on the humility of Jesus.
