"The greatest among you will be your servant." Matthew 23 : 11

Following on the election of Peter, Matthew’s Jesus describes a very negative picture of the Pharisees, pointing the finger at all their foibles and self-seeking glory.  Only those who follow their true Master and practise what he teaches will be worthy of his Kingdom. These followers need to be in a true relationship with God their Father and to treat others as their brothers and sisters, acting towards them as stewards and servants.


Lord Jesus, teach us to care for others as you cared for us. Help us to learn to be servants of each other. Amen
