God loves little people! He looks for people who are small in their own sight to become the leaders in His Kingdom. All who starts out in the Kingdom of God always starts out as a little person, humble and small in their own eyes.

“If any man will come after me let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily and follow me.” (Luke 9:23) “. The Lord is asking us to die to self, it means allowing the flesh to be crucified by His Spirit everyday and let the resurrection life of Jesus lives inside us.

In Matthew 20:20-28, the mother of James and John, comes to Jesus with a request. “Grant that these my two sons may sit, the one on thy right hand, and the other on the left, in thy kingdom.”

The answer that Jesus gave her was interesting. “But Jesus answered and said, “Ye know not what ye ask. Are ye able to drink of the cup that I shall drink of, and to be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?” (Matthew 20:22). In other words, are you willing to follow me in death also?

In Matthew 20:25-27 Jesus says, “But Jesus called them unto him, and said, “Ye know that the princes of the Gentiles exercise dominion over them, and they that are great exercise authority upon them. But it shall not be so among you: but whosoever will be great among you, let him be your minister; and whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant”

In 1 Samuel 15:17, Samuel said to Saul, “When thou wast little in thine own sight, wast thou not made the head of the tribes of Israel?”

When Saul was chosen as King, he said, “Am not I a Benjamite, of the smallest of the tribes of Israel, and my family the least of all the families of the tribe of Benjamin? Wherefore then speakest thou so to me?”(1 Samuel 9:21)

When Solomon was appointed king, he said “I am but a little child: I know not how to go out or come in.” (1 Kings 3:7). It was because of what he said that God gave him not only wisdom, but also riches and honor.

The disciples asked the question, “Who is the greatest in the Kingdom of heaven?” And calling to him a child, he put him in the midst of them and said “Truly, I say to you, unless you turn and become like children, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”"Whoever humbles himself like this child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. (Matthew 18:1-4)

Jesus says, “And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant.” Praise the Lord!!! the true servants of Jesus Christ must always be humble, just like his master.
