Servant Attitude – Matthew 20:25-28

Welcome to Scriptures for Life with TorahFamily.org. Taking time to focus on the Father’s way.

Matthew 20:25-28
Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. 26 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 27 and whoever wants to be first must be your slave — 28 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.”

The leaders of the Gentiles want to rule and exercise authority. It seems in this world that everybody wants to rule the world or least as much as they can. Yet, that is truly not to be our desire. Our desires are to be focused on serving. That’s right. Serving.

So what’s your attitude in life? Do you have a servants attitude? Is it your goal to serve or to be served? Yeshua said whoever wants to become great must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave.

Those words just go against everything we’ve been taught. Don’t they? But if that’s what we’ve been taught, then who’s been our teacher?

Let this be a focus in your time of meditation throughout the day. Until next time, Shalom.
