Be more concerned about the task to be performed by you than the title to be conferred upon you.
Remember the story of Jesus washing the feet of the disciples! (John 13:1-11) It was the custom to wash the feet of guests who had been traveling on the dusty road. The disciples weren't doing the job, so Jesus got busy and did the task Himself. What makes this incident so ironic is that the disciples had been arguing earlier about which of them was to be the "greatest" in God's Kingdom. While they were worried about a title, Jesus grabbed the towel.
We can't be too critical of the disciples, because we make the same mistake. We are so anxious to be important, to be noticed, and to have prestige. We are thinking so much about our own image that we overlook the needs of others.
Let Jesus be our example. Forget about our own self-importance and focus on the needs of others. Be looking for ways that we can be helpful!
"You are the light of the world.
let your light shine before men,
that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven."
