Serving others and putting them first leads to surprising freedom.

One time Abraham Lincoln was walking down a street with his two small sons.

The boys were fighting and screaming at each other. A neighbor asked, Mr. Lincoln, what is wrong? What is wrong with the whole world, Lincoln said. I have three walnuts and two sons, both of whom want two of them.

Lincoln was right. That’s why Jesus said, if you’re at a dinner party, take the least important seat. Serve rather than rule. Be great by not thinking you’re great. You’ll be surprised at the freedom when walnuts don’t matter.

I’m Steve Brown. You think about that.
