Rabbi, Father, and Teacher

“But you, do not be called ‘Rabbi’; for One is your Teacher, the Christ, and you are all brethren. Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. And do not be called teachers; for One is your Teacher, the Christ. But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant. And whoever exalts himself will be humbled, and he who humbles himself will be exalted.”  Matt 23:8-12

Its hard not to want to be looked at as a great teacher and someone with all the answers, but if we are really going to be what we are called to be as followers of Jesus Christ we must be willing to be the least, be humbled and exalt our great teacher, Christ, and Father, God. We must see each other as equal brothers (and sisters) all under the same teacher and rabbi, all children of one Father.
