Calling them to Himself, Jesus said to them, "You know that those who are recognized as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them; and their great men exercise authority over them. "But it is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant; and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be slave of all. "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many." - Mark 10:42-45 NASU


Jesus didn’t come to be served but to serve. We do our best to imitate Him. What if everywhere we go and everything we do, we go to serve and not be served? We no longer look at what I want and what I can get out of this. Instead, we go into every situation with the intention of giving. Even going to a restaurant where we are served, we intend to receive with a smile, with encouragement being a bright part of the day of the waiters and staff serving us.

Stop trying to be first in everything you do. Start putting others first wherever you go. Throughout the day, yield to everyone you encounter and put them before you. Placing others first isn’t easy. It’s going to cost you. It would help if you set a margin in your schedule to accommodate all you serve first. Jesus was an important man with a schedule to keep. Jesus had a specific agenda. But He had enough margin to accommodate the unexpected divine appointments. Jesus was always about His Father’s business but had enough sense to discern when an interruption to the schedule was still the Father’s business.

but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence; - 1 Peter 3:15 KJV

What I tell you in the darkness, speak in the light; and what you hear whispered in your ear, proclaim upon the housetops. - Matthew 10:26-28 KJV

Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience, and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the profession of our faith without wavering; (for he is faithful that promised;) And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. - Hebrews 10:22-25 KJV
