I read this in my NIV Once-A-Day Walk with Jesus devotional i do on my tablet [i wish once a day]…

‘Listen to the world and you will hear the message: “Greatness consists of how many you lead.”

Listen to God’s voice and you will hear just the opposite: “Greatness consists of how many you serve.”

They can’t both be right. You can push to the head of the line and receive the world’s applause. Or you can give up your place in line and hear God’s “well done.”

The servant of God knows his place.
