The Servant

In looking for a servant in the mold of Jesus, consider the measure of the prophet Isaiah from this weekend’s reading. Look for a person …

not crying out, not shouting,
not making (their) voice heard in the street.
a bruised reed (they) shall not break,
and a smoldering wick (they) shall not quench …

(Isaiah 42:2-3a)

Before getting into whom this doesn’t sound like, let’s think about the people we know for whom this fits. I can count a few teachers, a mentor, and my most recent boss.
