That’s a big pay-cut

Jesus, who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, 7 but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 

A reflection:
Jesus was willing and able to give up his high status, as being in very nature God, to be a servant of all. Why do we find it hard to give up (what we think is our well deserved) social status, for the sake of others?

A prayer for today:
Lord, help me today, when I feel it is difficult to serve others. Remind me of just how much you gave up in order to serve us. By your Spirit, help me to radically serve like you serve. Amen
