Servant’s Heart (poem by me)

I know you think life’s easier,
Because you’re not me,
I’m the custodian or waitress,
Never the manager or maître d.

I may seem low and simple,
Earn a meager salary,
I have no one to impress,
So the money’s fine with me.

I’ll open your door,
And buff your floor,
Make you feel like a queen,
Cause it lights my smile,
And gives me joy awhile,
Serving brings blessing.

Do you have a servant’s heart?
Be the first to congratulate us,
For Jesus said the least
In His kingdom is greatest.

If you are normally honored,
Look down on me if you wish,
I only speak the truth when I say,
The servant’s heart is a gift.

“If I then, the Lord and the Teacher, washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.” –John 13:14

“….it is the one who is least among you all who is the greatest.” –Luke 9:48
