Serving the Word: Mk 9: 30-37

Mark 9, 30-37:
“If anyone wants to be first, he must make himself last of all and servant of all.”

The thoughts of Jesus and the thoughts of his disciplesare two parallel paths.
The thoughts of Jesus and our own thoughts can also be parallel
+ Jesus speaks of commitment until the end, of service, of humility, of death and of life in its fullness.
+ The disciples, and we as well, think about positions of honour, of power, in who will be the most important.
Jesus leaves things very clear for them and for us: “If anyone wants to be first, he must make himself last of all and servant of all.”
May your heart be like that of a child who receives this teaching of Jesus with the welcome and simplicity that only a child can have.
Put yourself in the “queue” and put on your “apron” and seek to be the last so as to be the servant of all.
In this way you will be the first in the Kingdom of Heaven.
Good day

Antonio Sanjuán Marín, CMF
