Greatness in the kingdom of Jesus is stopping for the needs of others. It is setting aside for the moment our own hurts and concerns, to listen, then to ask, “What do you want me to do for you?”
We may be little in the eyes of other men. But if we follow Christ’s example of servanthood, we will be great in the eyes of God.
Begin each day asking God for an opportunity to serve.
Do all the good you can,
by all the means you can,
in all the places you can,
at all the times you can,
to all the people you can,
and as long as you can.
— John Wesley
