A Servant's Heart

What do you think of when you hear the word "servant"? I usually think of a maid, or a butler. Someone who waits on someone else and attends to their every need.

I suppose a servant could be one of those people who work's at Culver's or McDonald's. They are always asking us what we want. They even ask us if we want something we had no intention of buying.

"Would you like some cheese curds today?"

"Would you like fries with that?"

"Would you like to super-size your meal?

I wonder though . . . are they really being servants or out to make their bosses happy by getting us to spend more money at their fast food joint. Hmm.

Having a servants heart is a true blessing. There is nothing quite like serving someone else, helping someone accomplish something they cannot do on their own.

We usually think of servants as those who do the dirty jobs that WE don't want to do. In a sense, that's true. But try looking at true servants through the eyes of that servant. Their desire is to help you. They care about you. And they love you, whether you know it or not. They really do care.

My question to you this morning is, "Who will you serve today?" Who it is in your life, right now, that needs some help, a hand up? We are called to offer OUR hands to help our brothers and sisters.

What are we waiting for?

Let's show someone we care today by going out of our way to serve them.

"22 Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart," - 1 Peter 1:22
