["...1 In that hour came the disciples unto Jesus, saying, Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?
2 And he called to him a little child, and set him in the midst of them,
3 and said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye turn, and become as little children, ye shall in no wise enter into the kingdom of heaven.
4 Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child, the same is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven...]
It all sounds innocent, excuse the pun, but do we really like to take that seat in the lower end of the table. Do we really want to be the one with the apron on? Do we really want to be the one to ask forgiveness first? I stood praying with the Lord and outlining my fears and my 'to do' list. I was explaining in what areas I wanted him to help me. And at the last clause of my dialogue I said to him or him to me that I hadn't really forgiven someone who would never apologize to me for his or her behavior...
I did not want to put the apron on. Nor did I want to wait on anybody! And the towel around my waist and wash feet? Wonderful communion ceremony but I have my own church and ceremony! No thank you! I did not want to be the first one to serve! But unless I turn and take that apron and get rid of the pride, "Ye shall in no wise enter into the Kingdom of heaven...". Do I need a dictionary or concordance to outline that statement from the Lord? May you be blessed. Amen.
