I Corinthians 1:10 (NKJV) Now I plead with you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.
Servanthood implies a great measure of diligence, faithfulness, loyalty, and humility. Servants don’t compete with each other, or grandstand to bring attention to themselves, or try to grab the limelight. They know their job, they admit their limitations, and they do what they do quietly and consistently. These are truths I am learning now and endeavoring to apply to my life!
Servants understand they cannot control anyone or everything, and they shouldn’t try. Servants cannot change or “fix” people. Servants cannot concern themselves with who gets the credit. Servants just go about the business of serving without any fanfare or selfish motives. Did you know this about Servanthood?
Let us today learn the “Art of Serving” I don’t know about you, I am learning and more times than not my understanding has been challenged by the Lord in how to serve Godly. Let’s just serve, in the name of Jesus.
