Why is it that people measure the success in their life by having people serve them? Why do we have to go to hotels to be served, then leave it a mess? Why do we need a house keeper, and expect the mess WE make to be cleaned up?

Jesus came to the earth to be an example for us.

Matthew 20:28 "He didn't come so that others could serve him. He came to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many people."

Jesus came to serve. Why do WE expect to be served? Are we showing our family that example also? Or are we teaching them the habit too, of "I deserve this, they should be serving us!"?

We need to come down, off our pedestal that we set ourselves on, and start again. Serving. Serving God first, then our families, then others. Start with #1 (God).

God- Help us to stop expecting the Hollywood standard in our lives. Help us to stop acting like spoiled brats, and expecting others to serve US! We need to humble ourselves now, or be humbled later. Thank you that You send Jesus as a perfect example for us. Help us to take Him in and not only act it out, but absorb it. We love you ~Amen
