This is this morning’s devotional from Max Lucado’s book, “Grace for the Moment, volume 2.”

1 Peter 5:5 TEV – Put on the apron of humility, to serve one another.

Servanthood requires no unique skill or seminary degree. Regardless of your strengths, training, or church tenure, you can….love the overlooked.

Jesus sits in your classroom, wearing the thick glasses, outdated clothing, and a sad face. You’ve seen him. He’s Jesus.

Jesus works in your office. Pregnant again, she shows up to work late and tired. No one knows the father. According to water-cooler rumors, even she doesn’t know the father. You’ve seen her. She’s Jesus.

When you talk to the lonely student, befriend the weary mom, you love Jesus. He dresses in the garb of the overlooked and ignored.

Matthew 25:40 MESSAGE – Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked and ignored, that was me – you did it to me.
