Matthew 23:11

"The greatest among you will be your servant." NIV

"But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant." KJV

If you and I were to take a test on how humble we are and how much of a servant we are, how would we score? Let's be honest. Our score would most likely humble us. Our problem is that we look for praise from our family, friends, co-workers, and society. In doing that, our "glory" will be for but a moment and it will vanish. Jesus teaches us that true greatness that will endure for eternity is to be humble servants to others. That is so contradictory to the world's thinking isn't it? But then God's way is the narrow path, the one that few find.

Heavenly Father, forgive us for trying to gauge our spiritual goodness by the praise we receive from others. Help us to grab hold of humility and servanthood so that we stay on the narrow way. We know that is the only way we will get to You. In Jesus' name, Amen.

The more I think about humility, the more I realize how much more work I need to do to improve. To one degree or another, we are all in the same boat.
