Manna For Today: Friday, June 3, 2016
Mark 9:33-35 – Then He came to Capernaum. And when He was in the house He asked them, “What was it you disputed among yourselves on the road?” 34 But they kept silent, for on the road they had disputed among themselves who would be the greatest. 35 And He sat down, called the twelve, and said to them, “If anyone desires to be first, he shall be last of all and servant of all.”
Our sidebars can often contain the kind of stuff we rather not have exposed to the public yet God sees and hears every conversation no matter how secret. Unbridled ambition is destructive and can lead to a lack of the consideration one may desire.
In Christ’s economy the way up is often down. We lead by serving instead of being served.
Take a moment to think, am I mentally-oriented to “front of the line” status? If so, ask God to help you become servant-oriented from wherever you may be in line.
Peace and blessings!
