John 7:18. Content to be second

Whoever speaks on their own does so to gain personal glory, but he who seeks the glory of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him.

I don't suppose that this is a verse on everyone's lips, yet it is so true. It speaks of the absolute servanthood of Jesus. Despite being co-equal with the Father, he is subject to him. How rare is such an attitude in our human doings. Always trying to strive for the top position. Remember Paul's picture of the body - how we all have our designated roles.
