Humilty and Service

“even as the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many.”

Read: Matthew 20:28 (ESV)

Matthew 20:20-28 talks about the dispute among the disciples on who is the greatest among them. Even the mother of Zebedee’s sons wanted her sons to sit beside Jesus on the throne. Jesus rebuked them and emphasized that to be the greatest, we must be slaves.

We can start applying this in our lives by showing humility even in our homes — where we are least humble. We could show it through serving (without grumbling) at home even in the simple things. Jesus, our Master, served his disciples instead of waiting to be served, shouldn’t we then serve Christ by serving each other?
