Find practical ways to serve others.

Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. John 13:14-15 (NIV)

  • Servants serve! As Jesus Himself demonstrated, to be a servant means finding ways to serve others, and then actually doing it.
  • The Bible is clear that if we fail to rein in the pridefulness that comes so naturally to us as human beings, it can have a devastating effect on our lives. Replacing our natural pride with godly humility won’t be easy. In fact, it will be a lifelong process that we can accomplish only with God’s help. But look at the reward for doing so:

But he gives us more grace. That is why Scripture says: “God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble. James 4:6 (NIV)

Humble yourselves before the Lord, and he will lift you up. James 4:10 (NIV)
