3-26-15 Greatest in the Kingdom
March 26, 2015 Leave a comment
The greatest in the kingdom is the least:
A little child without pretentious claim
Who waits until the guests have left the feast
To have the smallest portion all the same.
A little child is humble, kind and shy,
Who lives to hear his Father’s loving call
Then runs into His arms not asking why,
Expecting no reward or gift at all.
The child of God thinks nothing of himself,
Without the selfishness of evil’s sting,
And leaves his own needs high upon the shelf,
Reliant on His God for everything.
Whoever’s humble as a little child
Is greatest in the kingdom, meek and mild.
Whosoever therefore shall humble himself as this little child,
the same is greatest in the kingdom of heaven.
Matthew 18:4 KJV
