Seeking to serve leads to fulfillment.
“The greatest among you must be your servant. Whoever exalts himself will be humbled; but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”
What Jesus is telling us is exactly the opposite of what our culture tells us.
It tells us to strive to be first…to be served…to beat all the competition…to win the applause of all…to seek to be the “American Idol.”
Jesus tells us to “die to ourselves”…as in “let go of our egos’ demands.”
It’s up to God to do any “exalting.”
Paradoxically…it’s in letting go of our self-centered motivation and in seeking to serve others…that we find our true selves and meaning of our lives.
Jesus said, “Whoever loses his life for my sake will find it” (Mathew 10:39). We have a choice. God gave us free will for a reason.
