The Personal Touch
“The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve…” (Matthew 20:28a)
No one considers the waiter to be the greatest person at the table, but the meal doesn’t happen without him. Whisking plates to and from tables, filling glasses, and meeting requests before they are made, a good waitress makes the event happen. Good table service makes you feel that you are the center of their attention – no matter how busy the restaurant may be.
Jesus is the ultimate servant. He died for the whole world, yet lived in a way that made everyone around Him feel they were individually loved. His service was sacrificial and personal all at the same time.
In what ways can we emulate Him? Make your service personal. You don’t have to make a difference with everyone – just start with someone.
