Highly Humble

Jesus’ disciples had a human side. This became obvious one day when an argument broke out among them over “which of them would be the greatest” (Luke 9:46). 

Jesus intervened with a meaningful object lesson. He “took a little child and had him stand beside him”….and said to His disciples—

​“Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; 

​  and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. 

​  For he who is least among you all—he is the greatest.”

​  (vss.47-48)

Christ’s kingdom is remarkably different than the world’s. Humility is a high virtue in the former. Christ Himself is the Great Model (See Philippians 2:5-11). We are called to join the humble---and be highly honored.

PONDER POINT: In Christ’s kingdom, one steps down to greatness.
