Luke 22:24-27 NRSVue

24A dispute also arose among them as to which one of them was to be regarded as the greatest. 25But he said to them, “The kings of the gentiles lord it over them, and those in authority over them are called benefactors. 26But not so with you; rather, the greatest among you must become like the youngest and the leader like one who serves. 27For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.

Some thoughts on this scripture

Jesus makes us think again about what it means to be a leader as he shows us new meanings of 'friend' and 'servant'. I take time with these words, considering what they mean for me. In the presence of God, I look at how I lead, serve and befriend.
