We want to sit at the head table.

This sermon takes its text from Matthew 20:20-28 where the mother of James and John asked Jesus for her two sons to sit at his right and left hand in his kingdom.  She was in effect asking for her sons to have the two most powerful positions of authority aside from the King's.  This sermon is about how we often miss the point and get snared by petty pursuits.
