A Collect to Embrace the Paradox of Humility
Lord of paradox, whose ways are not like our ways, teach us to embrace your seemingly upside-down kingdom, where those who are honored are servants of all, that we might experience the goodness that you bring and the joy of living in a people who are exalted greatly for their love, through Jesus Christ our Lord, who reigns as servant and king at your right hand in the Holy Spirit. Amen.
"For all who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted." - Luke 14:11
