Mark 10:44 And whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.
Some time ago, a friend was helping us do a couple of things around the house. When I asked him if he would mind doing one additional thing before he left, he jokingly responded, "and would you like fries with that"? Hmmm. A wise man was once asked, "How can I know if I have a servant's attitude?" The wise man responded, "By how you act when you are treated like one!"
The word for servant in the above scripture is "doulos", which literally means "bondslave" in the Greek. Thankfully, Jesus doesn't treat us as such but like it or not, we are the Lord's bondslaves and we are called to serve our Master's every desire and respond immediately to his call at any given time.
Lord forgive us for the times we fall short of this high calling! We humble ourselves before you and recommit our mind, body and will, fully to you once again today. It is a priviledge and an honor to serve you. We love you and bless you and thank you for your infinite mercy. There is none like You. We pray in Jesus precious Name.
