“Jesus called them together and said to them: ‘You know how among the Gentiles those who seem to exercise authority lord it over them; their great ones make their importance felt. It cannot be like that with you. Anyone among you who aspires to greatness must serve the rest; whoever wants to rank first among you must serve the needs of all.”
Notice how Jesus does not chastise the apostles but speaks to them honestly from his heart in order to teach them a deeper life lesson.
- How does this lesson sit with you?
- Let that lesson affect your life today?
Heritage word—“Leavening our society with a counter-cultural witness requires both an ‘accepting’ and a ‘letting go.’”
