Jesus taught us that whoever is the least among us all will be the greatest.
He wasn’t talking about social status or economical status when he said this. He was referring to whoever made themselves the least before God and humbled themselves.
Jesus has just come off of the mountain after the transfiguration and had healed a demon-possessed boy. After this he had predicted his death for a second time to the 12 disciples.
That’s where we’ll pick up in Luke 9:46-48:
“An argument started among the disciples as to which of them would be the greatest. Jesus, knowing their thoughts, took a little child and had him stand beside him. Then he said to them, ‘Whoever welcomes this little child in my name welcomes me; and whoever welcomes me welcomes the one who sent me. For it is the one who is least among you all who is the greatest.”
Remember to always humble yourself before God and make sure you remember who is in charge of your life!
