The Disciples Get a Lesson in Humility
Service with a Smile
Now that Peter established that Jesus is the Messiah, confirmed by Jesus, the disciples begin to play the power game. Who is the best disciple? Who will be first in heaven? Jesus gives them a lesson in humility; the first must be the last and servant of all. There's no posturing ... for all we know there may not even be such a thing as rank or position in heaven. However, if we are to err, we should err on the side of being in service and regarding all with respect and dignity.
