I’m sure you agree that Jesus Christ was the most influential man who ever lived. No one has or ever will match the impact He had.
What makes Him all the more remarkable is He wasn’t an autocrat. He wasn’t a leader running roughshod over people or demanding respect and obedience. Rather, Jesus was a humble servant. He “did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life” (Mark 10:45). After He performed the lowly task of washing the disciples’ feet, He said, “I have given you an example, that you should do as I have done to you” (John 13:15).
Whose feet could you wash today? What opportunities do you have right now to serve rather than be served?
Jesus, You are the King of kings and Lord of lords, yet You chose to live as a humble servant. May I follow in Your steps today as You give me opportunities to serve those around me. Amen.
