A few years ago, actor
Robert Brookfield was mistakenly reported to be dead. He had the rare
experience of seeing his own obituary. It read: “Never a great
actor, he was invaluable in supporting roles.”
in supporting roles.” I can see how he might not have considered that a compliment, but
when you think about it, nothing finer could be said of anyone. In the end,
being the best-supporting actor—faithfully, enduringly,
consistently—will prove to be the most glorious role any of us ever play.
Here is what was once said
by the greatest Man to ever walk the face of the earth.
10:45 New International Version (NIV)
45 For even
the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his
life as a ransom for many.”
Make it your goal this
week, and every week, to serve just like Jesus did. As we often say here at
Central Church of Christ, “Love people until they ask you why.”
