“For the one who is least among all of you is the one who is the greatest” -Luke: 50
I have always been an extremely competitive person, and used to focus on attempting to be the best at everything in high school. “First” meant “the best” and “the greatest” in my mind. I am sure my siblings will never forget my triumphant cry after beating them in pick-up basketball or a game of monopoly. When I would fail at being first and would come in second, third, and so on in school, sports, theatre, or other activities, a shadow of defeat would overwhelm me. Now, I am embarrassed when I look back and see how my pride would trounce any humility I possessed in my past. I was not glorifying Jesus through my life, and I was definitely not serving the people around me.
