Less than the least of these, am I willing to.be that? Less than a mere drop in the bucket. Less the the least, the poorest, the sickest, the weakest. No in reality I want to be the best, the top, number one, recognized, popular, spoken about...remembered.
Oswald Chambers put it this way...
"It is one thing to follow God’s way of service if you are regarded as a hero, but quite another thing if the road marked out for you by God requires becoming a “doormat” under other people’s feet. God’s purpose may be to teach you to say, “I know how to be abased…” (Philippians 4:12). Are you ready to be sacrificed like that? Are you ready to be less than a mere drop in the bucket— to be so totally insignificant that no one remembers you even if they think of those you served? Are you willing to give and be poured out until you are used up and exhausted— not seeking to be ministered to, but to minister?"
