Jesus said, though, that we should not be called "Rabbi" or "Teacher" or "Father" because there is only one Rabbi, one Master, one Father, one Teacher (Matthew 23:7-11). We are not to give ourselves such an exalted status. Instead we are to be brothers and servants to one another.
For Reflection: Is there any way in which we have exalted ourselves beyond where God has placed us?
Let us pray. Rabbi, you are our great Master, our true Teacher. You have the words of everlasting life.
