Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, "Anyone who wants to be first must be the very last, and the servant of all."
Thiese words from Jesus are difficult ones for me. They are simple and easy to understand, but not so easy to live out. It is sometimes difficult for me to remember to put others first. Often it is quicker or easier for me to take care of my own needs and move on. But my heart needs to always be open to seeing others and their struggles. I would like servanthood to be automatic and natural , as if by instinct. The more I practice, the more natural it will become, led by the Holy Spirit.
Holy Lord, help me to see myself as a servant, at all times, and in all situations. Let this become second nature for me. Amen
