Mark 9:35 (RSV)

And he sat down and called the twelve; and he said to them, 'If any one would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.'

Jesus calls us to a life or service. Sometimes, in this world where thirst for power are overwhelming we should try to focus on showing love, compassion and mercy toward all of God's Creation, leaving aside our earthly desires in order to honor God.
