Gospel : MT 23:1-12
The Greatest Among You Must Be Your Servant
We all want to be great. We all imagined ourselves on the peek of success, where all look up on us, seek wisdom from us and praise us. But is that really the picture of greatness? Jesus flips that image upside down in today's Gospel. Saying that "The greatest among you must be your servant." Must. It's a necessity, an obligation that if we do not fulfill then we are not the greatest person in the room. God calls all of us to serve, therefore to be great, in His standards.
Today's invitation is simple: Be a servant.
