Slaves of all

My husband and I didn’t have anything planned for New Year’s eve, so we spent the evening reading our Bibles. While I was meditating on the passages I had read in the gospel of Mark, God brought me to a very remarkable realization – that those who exercise (abuse) ‘authority’ and lord it over others in a way that Jesus condemned (Mark 10:41-44) will be held accountable to him. In the last day, they will have to give account as to why they have misinterpreted and misapplied Scripture – and abused any ‘authority’ that he may or may not have given them. In reading the verse, ‘whoever wants to be first must be slave of all,’ I realized that those husbands who treat their wives as if their wives were their servants will be last in the kingdom of God. The wives will be first before their husbands, because they were truly the ‘slaves of all.’ What a thrill to realize that God will bring about justice in all things in the last day.
