We are called not to be served…but to serve.

Then the mother of the sons of Zebedee approached him with her sons and did him homage, wishing to ask him for something. He said to her, “What do you wish?” She answered him, “Command that these two sons of mine sit, one at your right and the other at your left, in your kingdom.”
Despite spending a considerable amount of time with Jesus, most of his followers didn’t understand what he was about.
They didn’t hear or see that Jesus was demonstrating how to be a servant leader…not a military one.
He wanted to serve the poor and those in need…not from afar but by coming alongside them.
Meanwhile, the mother of the sons of Zebedee wanted her sons to have the power and prestige of being at the right and left of Jesus when he took over power from the Romans.
Talk about completely off base!
Jesus’ response: “Whoever wishes to be great among you shall be your servant (Matthew 20:26).”
You don’t have to have it all together to serve.
You don’t need a degree or some high sanctioning.
Anyone can do it…anytime.
The time is now.
