Many people in our nation have a feeling of entitlement. They think that the world owes them a living and that the government should take care of their every need.
Jesus warns against this kind of attitude. We shouldn’t feel that we exist so that everyone else can wait on us hand and foot. On the contrary, we should have the mindset of a servant.
Jesus says that he didn’t come to be served, but to serve (Luke 20:28). If anyone ever deserved to be served, it was Jesus, the creator and king of the universe. But he came to serve, and to offer himself completely, as a ransom for our sins.
Our attitude should be the same as that of Jesus—we should desire to serve, rather than be served. That would be quite an attitude adjustment for some.
