The greatest among you will be your servant.
I pulled off my latex gloves and placed them under the sink, my cleaning chores now complete. I made a cup of tea and wandered into the bedroom to curl up by the fire. Snow was expected soon.
For some reason, I couldn’t get the gloves out of my mind. I thought about how they did the work I asked them to do. Such trusty and uncomplaining servants they were!
”Make me like them, God,” I asked. “Let me slip over your hands, happy to serve without complaint.”
I took a sip of tea and looked out the window. Snow began to fall—downy flakes that danced on the soft breeze. I watched, mesmerized by their beauty and grace.
I took another sip of tea as the wind stirred the snow into a gentle whirlwind of white. How blessed I felt at that moment, the beauty of God revealed for my eyes to see. How blessed I felt to be a part of His magnificent plan. How blessed I am to serve Him.
