IT’S OK TO BE LAST

Categories: Pastor's Blog

“Many who are first will be last, and the last shall be first,” Mk. 10:31.
The world today often gives little respect to the poor and needy of society. Jesus explained that in the world to come, the values of this world will be reversed. Those who seek status, fame, and fortune on earth will have none in heaven. Those who are humble here will be great in heaven. The corrupt condition of our society encourages confusion in values. We are bombarded by messages that tell us how to be important and feel good, and Jesus’ teaching on service to others seems out of place. But those who have humbly served others are most qualified to be great in heaven.
Father, examine our hearts and teach us to walk humbly in your grace, serving others and thinking more of them than ourselves. Amen
