It’s easy when we make our resolutions to make them very self centered. I mean, it’s about making myself better right? What if it wasn’t though? What if part of making yourself better meant focusing on yourself less and others more?
In Matthew 23:11 Jesus confuses and astounds his followers by telling them the greatest among them must be the servant of them all. In this, we see Jesus remind us that in our pursuit if making yourself better, in our attempts to sanctify, grow, and change we must not lose sight of the fact that true greatness comes from our ability to serve those around us.
Who will you serve today? In what way will you work towards making this next year a year of service?
