When Adolph Hitler was
looking for a chauffeur, he interviewed 30 different men. The one he finally
hired had one key characteristic - he was the shortest. Though the man had to
have special blocks put under his seat so he could see over the steering wheel,
he was Hitler's chauffeur for the rest of his life.
Some people use others to
make themselves feel bigger. Jesus did just the opposite; He took on the role
of a servant. He made himself smaller so that we might know God's love.
the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as
a ransom for many.
