May 27, 2015 (Mark 10:32-45)

“Grant that in your glory we may sit at Your right and the other at your left.” James and John want to be rewarded. They feel they are “entitled.” After all, they’ve been with Jesus from the start. “Entitlement” is one of the buzz words of our time. Everyone seems to think they “deserve” certain things. But, only good things. James and John forgot that Jesus came “to serve and not be served.” They forgot His teaching about His suffering and death. They forgot what “discipleship” is all about. Let’s not be too hard on them. Sometimes, we forget, too!
