We expect good service. We want it to be done fast, and we want it to be done right. At restaurants, at stores, hotels, even at our our home, we expect to be waited upon. 
"For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many." Matthew 20:28.

Sometimes, we forget that we are supposed to be the servant. As followers of Christ, we should strive to be like Him, and He served others. He put everyone else above himself. Jesus didn't get so wrapped up in His own needs that he forgot about everyone else, like we so often do. He took care of the hungry, the sick, the thirsty, and the naked, before He even took care Himself. 

"The greatest among you will be a servant. But those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted" Matthew 23:11-12
