verses 6-7: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness.
God has shown me exactly what to do. I am to serve others. In this way, I can be just like Jesus. In other ways, I cannot expect to be like Him, and can’t hope to. I am not a tiny god, put on earth to have special powers or to be just like our creator. Jesus showed us how to lead our lives. Why is this so difficult in our culture? Why do I find myself struggling with this? We have made our lives and our very existence so complicated and time-consuming. Jesus’ message was not complicated: Live your life in servanthood.
Holy Father, I ask you again for direction, for open eyes to see opportunities, for softened hearts to accept your love, and for wisdom to know what you would have me do. If I miss an opportunity, please show me again. Amen
