Greatness

Winston Churchill said, “The price of greatness is responsibility.” He may have been thinking about his own experience when he uttered this quote, but Churchill touched on one of the basic teachings of Jesus Christ. Jesus’ disciples had been arguing about who was the greatest. He called them together and pointed out, “…Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all.” (Mark 9:33-35).

Hmmm. Servant of all. That does indeed sound like a lot of responsibility. It’s no wonder that so many people try to find a way around Jesus’s prescription for true greatness!
