Enjoy Life, Enjoy God

When an infection happens, often what is useful is a disinfectant, an agent is used to halt the infection.
Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, "Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all."
                                                   -- Mark 9:35 TNIV
Jesus knew we were infected.  Success, greatness, largess, and a huge portion of Christ's message and ministry challenges our values; he's always disinfecting.  He takes a little child.  We take celebrities, people who are somebodies, even in the church--Jesus takes a child as an example.  "Whoever welcomes one of these little children in my name welcomes me..." (37).
Jesus is disinfecting us.  He's turning our world upside down, yet our inertia forgets easily.
