Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave-- just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
--Matthew 20:24-28 New International Version (NIV)
Heavenly Father, help me to remember that I am to cover life's journey, even though I may go the way carelessly and aimlessly. May I make an estimate of what I am losing, by waiting so long at the resting places, "For the road winds up hill all the way to the end, and the journey takes the whole day long, from morn to night." Amen.

And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that?
--Matthew 5:47 New International Version (NIV)
Heavenly Father, I pray that you will give me a generous heart. May I not lose sight of the truth, that you have made others to have the same needs and wants that I may have. May I not through pride or egoism fail to help, and neglecting to speak, miss an opportunity to assist. May I be unselfish in friendly service. Amen.
