Last? Nobody likes to be last. We have a hard enough time settling for second place, much less last place. Jesus reverses the rank. The person who is most important to him is not the person seeking the status and notoriety. The most important person is like Jesus himself: willing to give up rank and status and importance to serve. For Jesus, last means first in service and first in the eyes of God.

Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, "If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all."

— Mark 9:35

Dear Lord, you have made the world wonderful for us and have given your Son to redeem us. How can we ever thank you or repay you for your grace and kindness? Help us serve others with grace and kindness. Give us eyes to see people as you do; not judging by mere appearances, but valuing, serving, and treating people as Jesus does. I Jesus name, Amen
