Daily devotional: Here to serve

Scripture
"...just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many."
Matthew 20:28 NIV

Observation
The next time I start to feel like I deserve respect, recognition, or service from someone else, I need to remember the kind of leader Jesus was. He could have come and rightly demanded respect, worship, and service from others. Instead, He came to give of Himself for our benefit, and He ultimately gave His life so that we could experience life, forgiveness, and reconciliation.

Application
Change my outlook and serve intentionally.

Prayer
Lord, thank you for reminding me how to lead in Your footsteps. And thank you again for the great weather this weekend and for the fellowship with Elise and friends. I love you!
