“The greatest among you will be your servant.” (Matthew 23:11) - Daily Bible Reflections August 12,2014


THE LITTLE MANAGER
 
At that time the disciples approached Jesus and said, “Who is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” – Matthew 18:1
 
One late evening, Leah, Tina and Mark argued with one another. They all wanted to be the restaurant’s next manager since the post was vacant. Leah was the “employee of the month” for five consecutive times. Tina was always assigned by the owner to attend to VIPs. Mark was always chosen to represent the boss in annual food and beverage conferences.
       The new employee, Ritchie, wanted to sit with them. They shooed him away. A couple entered the restaurant while the three were still debating. They told the new customers that the chef was gone and they were about to close. Ritchie knew this wasn’t true. He found a table for the couple but they left.
       The following day, the boss arrived. He introduced Ritchie as his son, part-owner of the restaurant and their new manager. Their jaws dropped. Apparently, he worked as a waiter for a month just to observe the ongoings in the restaurant.
       Leah, Tina and Mark, in a way, were like the disciples contending who among them was the greatest while trying to put the others down. Jesus cautioned them from looking down on fellow disciples and not to despise the little ones (Matthew 18:10).
       No one is too little, customer or employee. Carlo Lorenzo (carloflorenzo@yahoo.com)
 
Reflection: “The greatest among you will be your servant.” (Matthew 23:11)
 
Jesus, I can think of no one greater than You, yet You were born in a little manger. Help me have a humble heart.
 
St. Louis of Toulouse, pray for us.
