The Servant Spirit

The Son of Man did not come
to be served, but to serve.
    —Matthew 20:28

If you need a mission-statement, you can do no better than adapt and adopt Jesus’ words. Put it down this way:

I am not in this world to be served;
I am in this world to serve.

Today you will cross paths with someone who is hurting. You will have to be alert to spot it, and will have to pray for wisdom to know how to deal with it. The following words will put you on the right track …

Instead of being motivated by selfish ambition or vanity, each of you should, in humility, be moved to treat one another as more important than yourself. Each of you should be concerned not only about your own interests, but about the interests of others as well” (Phil. 2:3-4 NET).

Your worth is not measured by how well
you are served, but by how well you serve.
