Help us to discern in today’s particular situations what it means for us to be last so that we can strive for that status rather than strive to be first.
We will need such discernment because while we know immediately and reflexively what it means to be first, we have little or no idea what it means to be last and we have little or no desire to find out.
Thank you for the spirit of Christ that shows us the way.
Help us, when we discern the way to be last, to have the faith and courage to live toward it and in it, because it is bound to be a costly and difficult way.
Thank you for the spirit of Christ that empowers us in the way.
