Jesus said, and in Matthew 20:28 we read, “The son of man came not to be served, but to serve.” Service should therefore be the highest desire of every Christian. Kelly Willard, in his hymn “Make Me a Servant”, gives us the words we need to petition the Lord for a humble heart of service to those who are weak and in need.

Make me a servant, humble and meek;
Lord. Let me lift up those who are weak.
And may the prayer of my heart always be:
Make me a servant, Make me a servant,
Make me a servant today.
