Ebed-Melech, the Ethiopian eunuch
Who would have been more of a nobody, in ancient Jerusalem, than Ebed-Melech–an Ethiopian eunuch? But only Ebed-Melech spoke up for the prophet Jeremiah.
It occurs to me that “Ebed-Melech” probably wasn’t his name: It just means “slave/servant of the king.” Maybe his status was so low, he didn’t have a name.
But God remembered him. And saved him. God gave Jeremiah a message of salvation to be delivered specially to Ebed-Melech.
Because a servant of God is higher than a prince.
