a new definition of greatness


Sometimes I re-watch a video or re-read a passage and it moves me just like the first time.

Yesterday was one of those mornings.  Martin Luther King reminded me of a new definition of greatness.

Martin expanded on the words of Jesus as he preached on leadership.

But Jesus called them to him and said; “You know that the rulers of the heathen lord it over them and that their great ones have absolute power? But it must not be so among you. No, whoever among you wants to be great must become the servant of you all, and if he wants to be first among you he must be your slave – just as the Son of Man has not come to be served but to serve, and to give his life to set many others free.”

Matthew 20 25-28
