John 13:16-17 NRSVue

16Very truly, I tell you, slaves are not greater than their master, nor are messengers greater than the one who sent them. 17If you know these things, you are blessed if you do them.

Some thoughts on this scripture

When Jesus asks me to remember who I am, it is not to scold me or to reproach me but to help me not to be overburdened. I pray for the humility I need to remember that, though I am Jesus servant and messenger, he also calls me friend and counts me among his beloved.
