In today’s (chronological) Bible reading… Luke 14,15… we read another great section of Jesus’ teachings. Very practical stuff about some very prominent situations. Take “getting ahead” as an example…
Jesus said, “In order to get ahead, start at the back of the line.” The way to be first is to put others first!
Putting others in the limelight is a Kingdom principle. We may have the best qualifications, the best theology, the best resume’, and the best experience… but none of that will matter if people don’t know how much we care for them.
When we lift others up, we lift ourselves up, too. It is while we are finding the good in others that others will see the best in us.
Do you want to be great? Help others to be great!
