This, then, is how you ought to regard us: as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the mysteries God has revealed. – 1 Corinthians 4:1
The servant’s role was to bear the weight of the Master’s household – entrusted to maintain the property, spend money wisely, care for the family’s needs and work with other to bring stability and comfort to the home. Jesus did all that as God’s Servant and showed us how we should do the same.
When it seems a burden to carry the weight of responsibility and relationships, may we remember that Jesus also bore the weight of the cross.
