Mark 10:35–45

James and John ask Jesus a question that reveals common human ambitions—to be special, to be recognized, and to have privilege. They want to know if they can be at Jesus’ side in the Kingdom. Jesus’ response contains a simple and direct prescription for his followers: If you want to be first, you need to serve others. Jesus came to serve, not to be served, and he wants all of us to do the same.
