We start off the month in Matthew 26:36-56. Jesus had been with His disciples at a special Passover meal where He demonstrated service and humility as He washed their feet. Afterward, Jesus leads them to the garden to watch and pray. Jesus gave us an important lesson in humility as He prays to His Father, “Not my will, but Your will.” Jesus was soon arrested and put on trial to humbly face the darkest moments of His life.
Bottom Line: Put others first.
As we look at some of Jesus’ last interactions with His closest followers, we pray that kids will understand the importance of putting others first.[goldenticket] This isn’t always our initial response, but when we choose to show humility and put others first, we get to point others to Jesus.
