Living Water for Your Soul
Many who are first will be last, and the last will be first.
Jesus explained that in the world to come, the values of this world will be reversed. Those who seek status and importance here will have none in heaven. Those who are humble here will be great in heaven. The corrupt condition of our society encourages confusion in values. We are bombarded by messages that tell us how to be important and feel good, and Jesus' teaching on service to others seems alien. But those who have humbly served others are most qualified to be great in heaven.
To qualify for greatness in heaven, serve others humbly now.
