(Matthew 23)

Jesus spoke to the crowd, “The greatest among you must be your servant.”

Reflection:
Those among us who are considered “great” do not seem to be in a hurry to relinquish their position to become servants. 

Prayer:
Lord God, you lived in our midst as one who serves. Your life was given and spent for the good of others. You told us that to lay down our lives for another is the greatest gift of all.
