Jesus called them together and said,
“You know that those who are regarded as rulers of the Gentiles
lord it over them,
and their high officials exercise authority over them.
Not so with you.
Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,
and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all.
~Mark 10:42-44 (NIV)
Kingdom life is a paradox. The way up is down.
