The Heart Of A Servant


25 But Jesus called them to Himself and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and those who are great exercise authority over them. 26 Yet it shall not be so among you; but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant. 27 And whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave— 28 just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:25-28 NKJV)

This verse is talking about greatness and yet your greatness will not be measured by how much power and authority you have but by how you serve others using the power and authority that is available to you. Serving others can only be done when you show your concern for the welfare of others and in that moment you become a selfless person who cares about the needs of others you are trying to meet.  (more...)
