Attitude of a Servant

Luke 17:7-10

Jesus is talking to his apostles about discipleship. Disciples are servants of the Lord and must therefore be concerned about what he expects of them and not what they feel they deserve. The example of the relationship between a master and his servant is readily understood by his listeners.

Prayer: I know what I am obliged to do, but it often is easier said than done. I pray for the courage to turn that knowledge into action.
