Rediscovering Jesus: Serving, Not Served

April 1, 2012

"Don't be obsessed with getting your own advantage. Forget yourselves long enough to lend a helping hand. Think of yourselves the way Christ Jesus thought of himself." ~ Philippians 2:4-5 (The Message)

Reflection Questions:

  1. What have been the pluses and minuses of ambition in my life?
  2. Do I think people would describe me as a servant? Why or why not? How do I feel about my answer?
  3. Of the three expressions of servanthood discussed today - common courtesies, positional servanthood, unconditional servanthood - which is the area I am seeking to grow in the most?
