I would argue that the majority of us want to be great, whether great academically, or great in a sport, or great in a profession, or a great husband or father or business owner, or whatever your thing is. I think it is safe to say that most of us want to be great. Now outside these four walls, “greatness” is typically defined by how much money you make, or the car you drive, or the letters you have before or after your name. But I don’t think that’s how the scriptures would define greatness. As a matter of fact, if that is greatness than Jesus himself and John the Baptist especially would not be considered great.
