Day 284 Matthew 20:20-28

Thanksgiving: I Thank the Lord for the Heart of a Servant, For We are called to serve others and not to be served! I Thank the Lord for Selflessness, For we are called to put others before us in His Name! I Thank the Lord for understanding, For we have been called to go low, so the Lord may be lifted on high!

 

It is Written, “Then the mother of Zebedee’s sons came to Jesus with her sons and, kneeling down, asked a favor of him. “What is it you want?” he asked. She said, “Grant that one of these two sons of mine may sit at your right and the other at your left in your kingdom.” “You don’t know what you are asking,” Jesus said to them. “Can you drink the cup I am going to drink?” “We can,” they answered. Jesus said to them, “You will indeed drink from my cup, but to sit at my right or left is not for me to grant. These places belong to those for whom they have been prepared by my Father.” When the ten heard about this, they were indignant with the two brothers. Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave– just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20:20-28

 

Prayer: I Pray Father that you give your Children Hearts of a Servant, So that we may truly bring your Kingdom Here to Earth in Jesus Name, Amen!

One thought on “Day 284 Matthew 20:20-28

  1. What a humbling story in the new testament. Amen to being humbled and being willing to serve one another. We have so much pride in everything like all our accomplishments are just from us. We need to recognize they are from God!
