Closest

Dearly Beloved, Grace and Peace to you.                    They said to him, “Grant us to sit, one at your right hand          and one at your left, in your glory.”          … But Jesus said to them,          “Whoever wishes to become great among you                   must be your servant,          and whoever wishes to be first among you                   must be slave of all."                            —Mark 10.37, 43-44

God, I confess. I want glory. I want to be on the winning side. I want things to go my way, even if that is your way.

Christ, give me your heart, to find delight in serving others, not for glory, but to love them, which is to sit closest to you, and all the glory I need.
