Question: My friend at work quotes the scripture pertaining to the first shall be last and the last shall be first, she references it by people in authority and promotion etc. I told her I don't think that pertains to promotion. Isn't that scripture for the end times? What does that mean exactly?

Answer: Jesus was saying that many of those who seem to be the foremost in the kingdom of God may end up last in line, while those who seem to be insignificant will be first because they were quietly and relentlessly doing the work of God.
