Opening Prayer: Almighty God, search me so I may know sense the motives of my own heart today. Help me to love You for the joy of relationship with you. Amen.
Read: Matthew 20:20-28
Reflect: Why were the other disciples so angry that the mother of these other two disciples came and asked for preferential treatment? What cup is Jesus referring to when he talks about his cup? Would it be possible to make serving one another just a tool we use to become great in the Kingdom of Heaven? How could we become servants without doing it to gain something for ourselves?
Prayer: for the church, for others, for myself.
Hymn: “This is Thy Will, I Know”
This is Thy will, I know-
That I should holy be,
Should let my sins this moment go,
This moment turn to Thee.
O might I now embrace
Thy all sufficient power,
And never more to sin give place,
And never grieve Thee more!
Hallowed be thy name, not mine,
Thy kingdom come, not mine,
Thy will be done, not mine.
