Finding Greatness in God’s Kingdom

A Truth to Live – Earthly power is exercised with might and control, but authority in the Kingdom of God is demonstrated in meekness and humility.  I can find true greatness in God’s Kingdom when I serve others and stop demanding my rights.

Scripture – “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; but you are not to be like that.  Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves. I confer on you a kingdom, just as my Father conferred one on me.”  Luke 22:25-29

Prayer – Eternal God, today I will follow Your path of meekness and humility and serve those around me.  I know that Your Kingdom is not one of might and control, but of service and sacrificial love. I receive You as the authority in my life and ask that You will confer upon me Your eternal Kingdom. In Jesus’ name Amen.
