Are you following the footsteps of the Lord whom you serve? - Daily Bible Reflections November 12,2013

MY PARKING ATTENDANT

 
“We are unprofitable servants; we have done what we were obliged to do.” – Luke 17:10
 
“Your unworthy servant....” I was struck with these words as the Archbishop of Port Moresby was saying the prayer at a Mass referring to himself being Bishop of the Diocese. Maybe this is a regular prayer but this time, it rang differently in my ear.
       On another occasion, the good Archbishop, who arrived a minute ahead of me at a Talleres Convent, guided me with hand signals as I parked my car.
       “This is too much!” I mumbled to myself. “The Archbishop as my parking attendant?”
       Considering his stature, the Archbishop’s humility and readiness to serve his flock touched me deeply.
       As a servant-leader, it’s natural to delegate the “dirty jobs” to the “low ranking” servants. But not with this man of God. He really  lives up to the title of “servant.” He lives up to what Jesus said, “If anyone serves me, he must follow me” (John 12:26). Just like our Lord, He “came not to be served but to serve” (Matthew 20:28). Danny Tariman (dtariman.loj@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: Are you following the footsteps of the Lord whom you serve?
 
Lord, I am sorry for being “title-oriented” as I serve You. Grant me the grace to serve You in others. Amen.
 
St. Josaphat, bishop and martyr, pray for us.
