Mandatum Novum: A Community of Care
“Why friends rather than servants?” You might ask.
Where there are servants there are masters. That is not the case in a community of friends. Servants can become masters, but friends cannot.
“The nations of the world strive to be lords over each other,” Jesus said. “It should not be so with you” (Matthew 20:25; Mark 10:42; Luke 22:25–26).
