Everyone’s different, but we all serve someone or something. Bob Dylan’s song was actually quite accurate; You Gotta Serve Somebody. We have a lot of options in this arena. The most popular is to live a self-serving lifeand pretend that we’re not self-centered. Sometimes we fall into addictions – and end up serving the next drink, the next hit, the next sexual experience, or the next purchase. Sometimes people wind up serving our children – which is dangerous for both them and us. It’s possible to end up serving your bank account or your ego – through the work you do. Jesus said that when He truly gets ahold of our hearts and minds – and transforms us—we serve Him and serve others. That kind of servanthood is the mark of true greatness.
