It’s almost 4 p.m. on Saturday, and I’m looking for any excuse to keep from putting the sermon on paper. I’m using the Mark passage for the week, about who is the greatest in the kingdom.

I think I struggle with this text because Jesus is so explicit in his teaching. Human understandings of power and control are turned upside down. The powerless become powerful. It’s an easy thing to hear, and almost impossible at times to live out. Humility is perhaps the hardest lesson to learn.

I’m going to lie down and think about it for a while…
