The greatest among you must be your servant

“The greatest among you must be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.” (MT 23: 11-12)

To serve others? No problem; we do this all the time: working for our families, taking care of our children, our parents or siblings, helping our friends or comforting our neighbors, giving advice, or sharing our experiences. We serve daily. The only problem sometimes we have is—how long? When somebody will serve me? Will I have a good reward for my outstanding service? There is no other reward than the understanding that we are imitating Our Lord, we are doing what He did for us and for our salvation.

“You have but one Father in heaven; you have but one master, the Christ.” (Gospel Acclamation)
