Day 3: Servanthood is the key to greatness.
Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:25-28
Each of us feels a call to greatness. Jesus taught us how to achieve greatness in this world, and it’s not the way we might traditionally think. Our natural instinct is to climb the ladder of success, but Jesus showed that the path to greatness is to get low, as in humble, just as He demonstrated with His life.
Question: Are you climbing the ladder of success? Ask the Lord to show you how to humble yourself and display the life of Christ as you pursue greatness.
