Not to be served but to serve

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
         The Human one came not to be served
         but to serve.

                  —Mark 10.45

You who seek the Almighty
high above you
and are disappointed,

whom you must serve
and please, and makes you
nervous in your failure,

look beneath
for the Humble One,
your servant,

who makes no demands,
displays no power,
but makes your life possible,

endures the dirtiest jobs for you,
bears the most brutal burdens,
covers the darkest shame,

offers you the cup of life,
makes your soul shine,
loyal, submits to you,

waits for you
inside your breath.

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
