First Will Be Last

Do you remember in grammar school, when many schoolmates would race to the front of the line? Occasionally a teacher would say, ?we?re going out the other way today.? Then those guys at the front of the line really felt stupid when they realized they were now last. But according to the Scriptures, that?s the way things will be when we get to heaven (Mk. 10:31). Many will climb and claw their way up the ladder of success, only to die and realize that heaven defined success differently. All that work and sweat, just to end up at the very bottom of the ladder. ? Copyright 2002 Steve Miller - All Rights Reserved
