Word for the day: “Greatest Servant”

Luke 22:26 (GNT) But this is not the way it is with you; rather, the greatest one among you must be like the youngest, and the leader must be like the servant.

We live in a world that glorifies power, prestige, fame, and money. But the words of Jesus teach us that the most noteworthy men and women in this world are not the self-congratulatory leaders of society but are instead the humblest of servants. Are you willing to pay the price to become a humble servant for Christ? Are you willing to pitch in and make the world a better place, or are you determined to keep all your blessings to yourself? It is my belief that the answers to these questions will determine the quality and the direction of your day and your life.

Today, you may feel the inclination to take more than you give. You may be inclined to do as many in our society and withhold your generosity. Or you may be inclined to build yourself up in the eyes of your friends, family, and foes. Don’t go for the pattern of this world. Instead, serve your friends, family, and foes quietly and without a disposition of grandiosity. Find a need and fill it, and do it as a mere servant. Lend a helping hand, without being recognized for your service, with quiet sincerity. As you go about your daily activities, remember that the Savior of all humanity made Himself a servant, and we, as His followers, must follow the Servant Pattern of Christ. Have a great weekend! Today’s word is especially for Marriages, Pastors, Young people, Commnity leaders, Leaders in the making!

Quote Kay Arthur: So many times we say that we can’t serve God because we aren’t whatever is needed. We’re not talented enough or smart enough or whatever. But if you are in covenant with Jesus Christ, He is responsible for covering your weaknesses, for being your strength. He will give you His abilities for your disabilities
