Mark 9:35–Sitting down, He called the twelve and said to them, “If anyone wants to be first, be shall be last of all and servant of all.”
What is our goal? Jesus gives very clear instructions on how to be first and successful in life: the last of all will be first. How are we to be last? We are to be a servant. Are we seeking to serve others in every opportunity that we have throughout our day?
Lord, the secret to success is to serve others. Father, I want to display the heart of a servant in everything I do. I want to serve others as You have served me, with the same love and compassion and empathy that You have shown me.
