OCTOBER 23

 

 Whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servantó

Matt. 20:27.

 

 Among the Gentiles the rulers are lords, who do no serving but are served; but among the followers of Jesus the rule is to be reversed: he who would serve most was to be esteemed most highly. What a beauty there is in the Divine order of things! How thoroughly all who are right-minded can sympathize with the principles here laid down! How reasonable they are and how contrary to the spirit of the world. Truly, the Lordís followers will in this sense of the word be a peculiar people in their zeal for good works for serving one another and for doing good unto all men as they have opportunity.
