Suffering Servant

Suffering servant - God became a human being, as one of us, and became a servant to serve us, healing us and giving us the gift of salvation and the eternal life, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit.

God is the Greatest.
God is the First.
Yet, God serves us. 

Matthew 20:26
Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant.

Matthew 20:27
And whoever wants to be first must be your slave.

Matthew 23:21
The greatest among you will be your servant.

Mark 9:35
Sitting down, Jesus called the Twelve and said, "If anyone wants to be first, he must be the very last, and the servant of all."

Mark 10:43
Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,

Luke 22:26
But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves.

"You are more important than me"
"I serve you because I love you."

Philippians 2:3
Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves.

Romans 12:10
Be devoted to one another in brotherly love. Honor one another above yourselves.

Ephesians 5:21
Submit to one another out of reverence for Christ.

Imaging the emperor or Prime Minister of the country become a waiter to serve us, or become a doctor to treat/serve us rather than lording it over us.

Judge not lest you be judged but try to understand.

Empathy. Put yourself in their shoes, and try to understand the reason/cause for their behaviour, opinions, words and actions/deeds.
