If you were to see the Prime Minister helping the janitor to clean the offices,
you would probably be shocked.
If you came to meet the CEO of a big company and found him serving at table during the Christmas party,
you would probably be astonished.
If you saw the General Manager of the National Bank washing dishes in a refugee center,
you would most likely be amazed.
And yet… yet… God, OUR God is a… servant-God!
Are we not amazed? Astonished? Shocked?
He never wore a crown other than a crown of thorns.
Are we ready to accept this kind of King?
Accept this King and be ready to serve one another as he asked us to do –
having done it for us all his life unto death? (Jn.13:14-17)
