“Jesus does not say that we are to rip out the chief seats in the synagogues, but rather how to relate to them. He does not teach us to get rid of seats of honor at banquets — He teaches us how to get into them. He does not say that it is wrong to want to be great in the kingdom of heaven. He shows us how to become great in the kingdom of heaven. The glorious thing is that His method of doing this (becoming the servant of all) is a great way of removing the toxins of selfishness that will almost certainly be corrupting our ambition” (For a Glory and a Covering, p. 85).
