Jesus teaches us that humble service to others is a reflection of the divine image. For a Christian, a posture of humility and service is proper. It takes a deep confidence in God’s love for me to live my life this way.

It is better to serve than to be served. It is better to address the need of another than to be self satisfied. May I live this truth.

O Holy Spirit, empty me of any temptation to serve myself today. May I use my experience of being loved by God to fuel my service to those most in need.
