Mark 10:35 - Sometimes I'm Backwards

Mark 10:35 Then James and John, the sons of Zebedee, came to him. “Teacher,” they said, “we want you to do for us whatever we ask.”

Yes Lord.  I'd like the same thing.  I'd like for you to do for me WHATEVER I ask.  Please, give me everything I want.  Make my life easy, good, fun and filled with good things.  I want it all.  

Mark 10:45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

I guess I had it backwards.  It's not about it.  It's about serving and giving.  Lord, help me to quit focusing entirely on myself and give me the eyes to see others in need and heart to help them.
