    Personal Application: "We speak often of what we deserve to get in life. The ideal that we should be rewarded for our actions is ingrained in Western culture. More than any other person who has lived, Jesus Christ deserved to be glorified, but was willing to be treated as a servant. In what ways has Christ been your servant?"

    Prayer for the Week: Thank you God, for those You have placed in my life to be a godly example. Help me to use these examples to continue to give me the heart of a servant.
