What do we believe makes us great? We answer that question through the decisions and pursuits of our lives. Some value education and achievement. Others value status, wealth, and power. Others value social connections and service, parenting and work. Some place relationships or ministry at the forefront. Others value thinness...

Jesus, servant of all, may our fruitless comparisons fall silent in your presence. Make us faithful examples of true greatness. Amen.

Resumen de la Escritura

Proverbs describes the noble wife and sets a standard that can seem impossible. This woman is capable and respected but also generous and wise. She serves but is not weak. Is she a “superwoman,” and do all women need to be “superwomen”? No, she is noble because she follows the counsel of the psalmist and is deeply rooted in the teachings of God. Therefore, she represents a standard for everyone to emulate, not just women. James, another teacher of wisdom, encourages believers to show these same characteristics by following the wisdom given by God. In Mark’s Gospel, the disciples display a lack of wisdom by arguing over who is the greatest. Jesus reminds them that greatness in God’s eyes comes through service, not through seeking recognition.
