The question as to what constitutes greatness is an interesting and challenging one. Jesus' first disciples famously argued about this particular matter. Conventional wisdom is clearly very different from Jesus' approach of promoting the way of service. It is also worth thinking about what it is that drives us, what are the things that really matter to us and what are those that really bother us.
In his reflection for the first Sunday in Lent in "Never Said a Mumbalin' Word" Mark Francisco Bozzuti-Jones asks an interesting question and makes an interesting point:
- What gives you a feeling of greatness in your life as a Christian?
- Remember that Jesus began his ministry after facing his demons.
