Greatness does not come on a platter of gold

The mother of two of the disciples of Jesus Christ (the Zebedee brothers) once approached Jesus Christ and requested that her children be put in a great positions in God’s kingdom.

This Godly woman surely had a good intention though her request was born out of ignorance. Jesus did not rebuke her but helped her, her children, other disciples and us to understand that heaven does not give out greatness to people that way – it must be earned through service.

Jesus said, “Not so shall it be among you; but whoever wishes to be great among you must be your servant, And whoever desires to be first among you must be your slave. ” Matthew 20:26-27 (AMP).

Christians are in the service business

We are deeply in the service business. Don’t ever desire greatness if you are not ready to be a servant. Even Jesus took up service as a serious business when He was here on the earth.

In God’s kingdom, service is the sure pathway to greatness.

I love to teach and use success principles from the Bible to solve practical problems. My many books tell all the stories. All problems have their solutions in the Bible. I am married with kids.
