March 2, 2010 Tuesday of Lent

"The greatest among you must be your servant.
Whoever exalts himself will be humbled;
but whoever humbles himself will be exalted.”
- Matthew 23:11-12

This is another one of those Gospel passages that turns the world's way of thinking on its head. We don't like to serve. The general way of thinking is "What can you do for me?" rather than the other way around. Yet, Jesus calls us to serve. Every single day our mission must be to do what we can for those we come in contact with. Whatever we do for the least of our brothers, we do for Jesus. The opportunities for service are many. Will we embrace them?
