The first quality of greatness is service.  In a way, God is the greatest servant of all, because He is always waiting for us to call on Him.  His strength is always available to us, but we must ask it of Him through our own free will.  It is a free gift, but we must sincerely ask for it.  We are on earth to serve others.  That is the beginning and the end of our real worth.  If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.  For I have given you an example that you should do as I have done to you” (John 13:14–15).


Father, every day I will try to grow in newness of life.  I will think about spiritual things often, and unconsciously, I will grow.  Struggle and effort make me conscious of my weakness, but in struggle and weakness, I can always rely on Your power to help me.  The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want” (Ps. 23:1).


If Jesus did it, so should we!
