Here is a real image of discipleship in today’s gospel: to serve and to become small. Discipleship is not about position or importance or recognition or prestige; it’s about imitating Christ in the way we give our lives to others and in the way we reach out with love for others. But it’s also about ‘recognising’ God in those so easily overlooked – the child, the vulnerable, the weak, the seemingly insignificant, or  unimportant, those ignored or forgotten. The disciple should have eyes to see the face of God revealed in those who can be so readily ignored. As communities we can be too quick to worry about who’s first or who is best or who’s the most important. As disciples we should be ready to see the face of God in those around us and serve them, reach out to them… but our lives should also reveal something of the face of God because of who we are and because of the loving, compassionate service we give.
