Serving God vs. Serving the World

To serve  God, one must elevate others above themselves. Christ told the Apostles when they began to argue among themselves about who among them was the best out of all,”Jesus, knowing the thoughts of their hearts, had a little child stand beside Him.48And He said to them, “Whoever welcomes this little child in My name welcomes Me, and whoever welcomes Me welcomes the One who sent Me. For whoever is the least among all of you, he is the greatest.”… He said to the Apostle  who had bowed before Him to “Get up!” I have not come to be served, but to serve.”

Serving the world and its ways cares not for the things of God which are: goodness, holiness, chastity, temperance, long-suffering, and kindness,which are motivated by love, not hatred ,bigotry, deceit, and oppression.

He said to know the world and its ways,  but do not conform to them.

Lesson for today.
