Tread to become great
James and John asked Jesus to sit on the right and left in His glory. When the other ten disciples heard about this, they become indignant towards the two. Like James and John, we would like to become great--to be famous, have authority and social status. In contrast, Jesus tells us that to be great and first is to serve all and give our life to many.
The path to greatness is to serve others. Jesus, teach us how to be truly great. May our hearts have the desire to serve and to give our lives to all.
