Who is like God

The Feast of the Archangels (and me, dumkopf, I forgot to call my brother and wish him a joyous feast day...)
But apropos of nothing, a thought occurs -- the bad angel? (take your pick, Lucifer, Satan... in any case,) "non serviam."
The good angels? They WILL serve, they DO serve.
Michael, "who is like God," exactly how is he like God?
By serving.
Because God emptied Himself and took the form of a slave.
Michael, the prince of the angels, all good men and women, the saints, and us, too -- we are "like God" precisely in that we serve, and we are good to the extent that we serve.
