Everyone wants to be the drum-major. Every daydream has its author as the hero. Carl Sandburg once put it, “We want all to play Hamlet.” Alfred Adler, one of the fathers of modern psychology, names this as the dominant impulse in human behavior – the desire for recognition – which he said is stronger than even the sex impulse, which Freud put first. From children to adults, everybody wants to be first, to win the blue ribbon, to hear the applause, to receive the honors. But Jesus teaches us to be first, we must become last; if you desire exaltation, then humble yourself. Jesus cuts against the grain. Jesus said, blessed are the poor in spirit. This is Just-A-Minute
