Our actions are more revealing about ourselves than we may think. Mark 10:37, "Grant us to sit, one at YOUR right and one at YOUR left". Are we obedient to a "point", but then want recognition and authority for it? JESUS knew that to give James and John their desires that they not only could not drink from the cup; but that they would no longer to be WILLING to take of HIS cup or have HIS kind of baptism. How do we envision a servant or slave? Are they common positions of disgrace and hardships; or are they positions of HONOR AND PROMINENCE?
