The Greatest

One of the things that most impressed me about the staff at the children's home was their humility. After lunch when we were cleaning up, one of the child care workers came to take our plates. We told her no, that we could take them up ourselves, and she should take a break. She said "Let me be the greatest. The Bible says that the one who serves is the greatest, so I want to be the greatest." These servants of God have given their lives to follow Jesus by serving and caring for these orphans, and wanted to serve us as well. Wow, what an amazing heart. Being with the workers challenged me in my own attitudes as I serve the Lord. If I want to be great in God's eyes, I all I have to do is serve God with a humble heart.
