Servanthood over status

Don’t let anyone call you “Teacher” for you have only one teacher, the Messiah. The greatest among you must be a servant. – Jesus Matt. 23:10-11

Earlier in the passage Jesus describes the “official interpreters of of the law of Moses” as Rabbis who “crush people with unbearable religious demands” and “do everything for show.”  Instead, He emphasizes the servant over status. Titles and position are unimportant. Follow Jesus. Learn from Jesus.

Lord, teach me Your servant ways.
