Summary: Some may think of faith as a sacred competition which leaves us with insiders and outsiders. (And guess what? We usually conclude that we are the insiders!) At the heart of Jesus' ministry is the belief that greatness in his kingdom will not be measured by power and influence and accomplishment, but by love and compassion and kindness. Our call is to discern what inhibits us from participating in this, to do what we can to remove those inhibitions from our lives, and to become the people through whom love and compassion and kindness move.
