The rat race demands we measure ourselves by our life successes and failures. We naturally feel that we are getting ahead when we succeed in our job, a sport, or a life accomplishment. By contrast, we feel a deep sense of discouragement when failure in those areas is a reality. Is this how Jesus called us to live? Jesus’ contrasting comment that “some who are first will be last, and some who are last will be first” challenges our life perspective on what true success looks like. This weekend, we will discuss what Jesus really said about failure.
