Read Mark 10:35-45. It must be pretty special to be the Queen! The monarch is sovereign in our nation and in many places in the Commonwealth. Everyone looks to you for leadership. You are acclaimed wherever you go. If you are Queen, then you can make a difference in the world.
We are tempted to think that those of us who are not kings and queens cannot make a difference in the same way. What on earth can we contribute to human life? But that’s not what Jesus thinks. He knows that serving others, becoming a slave of everyone else, can change the world! Each one of us has good things to do for God. If you’re a Christian, God has something for you to do to serve others. And it will make a difference to those people.
The Queen spent over seventy years serving other people. Every time she did so, she was actually serving God. The same is true for us: we serve God when we serve others.
