Read Luke – Chapter 22
It’s striking that even as Jesus was facing his death, he was continuing to teach his disciples about life in God’s upside down Kingdom.
He had just shared his last supper — the Passover meal — with his disciples, again telling them that he was going to die. Once again they missed it and started to argue about which one of them was the greatest.
Instead of getting frustrated with their immaturity or lack of understanding, he calming talked to them about how in God’s Kingdom, to be great isn’t about position or authority, but serving others — completely turning the way things usually work on its head. He reminded them that he himself had shown them by example what it meant to serve.
Is there an area in your life has pride crept in? What can you do today to follow Jesus's example and humbly serve someone else — and by doing so begin to understand greatness in God's Kingdom?
