January 10: Greatest

 

Scripture Lesson: Luke 9:46-48

 

In the 1984 Hall of Fame voting, Luis Aparicio, Don Drysdale, and Harmon Killebrew were chosen for baseball’s highest honor. Killebrew, who died in 2011, is known as the Minnesota Twins greatest player. He hit 573 HRs, drove in 1,584 runs, and got 2,086 hits. Not only was Killebrew great on the field, he highly respected off the field, respected by teammates and opponents alike as one of the greatest men ever to have played the game. His number 3 was retired by the Twins.

 

Our Scripture lesson today deals with an argument that had broken out among the disciples. They were arguing about which one of them was going to be the greatest. Jesus knew what was in their hearts. So as he often did, Jesus used an object lesson to teach them. He took a little child and had the boy stand beside Him. Jesus told the disciples that whoever welcomes this child, welcomes me. The least among you will be the greatest, he said. True greatness comes from humility and being a servant. One of the things often said about Harmon Killebrew is that he was always willing to help. Greatness is not about what we amass, it is about what we give away by becoming like one of the “least of these.” I don’t know about you, but I would be happier to be seen as great in the eyes of Jesus than in what this world perceives as greatness!

  1. Would Jesus describe us as being great in His eyes? Why or why not?

  2. What does being like a little child have to do with greatness?

  3. How can we be great in the eyes of Jesus today?

It is very easy to get caught up in what this world deems to be greatness. Today let’s live greatness out by serving god and serving others!
