‘The Greatness of Humility’ This overview of Mark 10:13 - 11:25 coincides with our Sunday sermons from 25-03-07. Overview: Most of us don’t necessarily want to become great. We just want to know that our lives are significant. But, sadly, many of us believe that we need to become great in order to become important. Jesus Christ has placed his cross of humiliation firmly in the path of this misguided belief.
