No Child Lost

“Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven?” (Matt 18:1).

The disciples must have had good reason to ask Jesus just who was the greatest in the kingdom he was preaching. They had seen again and again how he reversed the world’s idea of greatness, declaring that the first would be last and the last first, or that those ambitious to be leaders must be servants. They had even experienced it themselves as they jockeyed for position in following him, only to realize that he was serious when he said they were going to Jerusalem, where he would die.
