“For behold, some are last who will be first, and some are first who will be last.”
Jesus says that the people our culture looks down upon…those viewed as being “last”…might actually be looked upon as “first” in the viewpoint of God’s Kingdom. And the reverse is also true. What matters in God’s eyes is our motivation in all that we do. What is in our hearts? Am I catering to my ego…or to the Greater Good? If we are motivated by love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion…then the Kingdom of God is at hand! In the Reign of God…there is no “first” and “last”…no separation…no one excluded. All are one. We are each called to live our lives in such a way that God’s kingdom does come “on earth as is in heaven” (Matthew 6:10).
