Jesus said, “For the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many.”
Jesus calls his disciples together when he hears the rest complaining about James and John seeking status. He defines himself as one who serves, who gives his life to redeem all. Jesus challenges his disciples to see they are following a servant, who wants to gather a community of equals for whom serving the rest is the most important activity. Jesus’ instruction to his disciples continues to challenge us to service rather than status.
Whose lives challenge you to live gospel values rather than work for social status?
