Old Testament Verse
I have put my spirit upon my servant; he will bring forth justice to the nations. Isaiah 42:1
New Testament Verse
You know that among the Gentiles those whom they recognize as their rulers lord it over them, and their great ones are tyrants over them. But it is not so among you; but whoever wishes to become great among you must be your servant. Mark 10:42-43
Thank you, God, for ruling this world with mercy and grace. Your kingship is like no other! I am sorry when I try to lord over others. Forgive me for exerting power when I should be exercising compassion. Help me to take up the cross again today, seeking to be great only in service to my neighbors. Amen.
