Special Consideration

“You know that among the Gentiles, those whom they recognize as their rulers lord it over them. But it is not so with you.”  Mark 10:32-45  Up to this point things between the twelve were going fairly well. Until brothers James and John decided to start some drama. At the time of Jesus glory, they wanted special consideration and the other ten got pretty indignant about it. Did James and John really think that no one would mind? Did they even care? No doubt Jesus is shaking his head, but instead of chastising the brothers for thinking ahead. Jesus reminds them that together they were chosen for a reason; serve God and serve one another. If each of us remembers to just do that  –  special consideration according to God’s grace is given to all who believe.
