Jesus said to the Apostles: “Who among you would say to your servant who has just come in from plowing or tending sheep in the field, ‘Come here immediately and take your place at table’? Would he not rather say to him, ‘Prepare something for me to eat. Put on your apron and wait on me while I eat and drink. You may eat and drink when I am finished’? Is he grateful to that servant because he did what was commanded? So should it be with you. When you have done all you have been commanded, say, ‘We are unprofitable servants; we have done what we were obliged to do.’”
Do you prefer to serve or be served? Do you do more than you need to do or only enough to get by? The Lord is calling us to be the servants and to do more than we are asked, not just enough. How do you rate as a servant? Humble and willing or to proud to serve?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, help me to always be willing to serve you and your children here on earth. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
The salvation of the just comes from the Lord.
