The Mind of the Servant

Why do servants demand service?
What is going on inside a person who is called to serve, but he or she expects someone to pick up their bible and carry it to the podium?  What is so difficult about a minister carrying his own Bible or IPad?
Why would we expect an applause or some recognition after we complete three hospital visits?
Why do we expect the sympathy line: "you must be really tired after doing a class, visiting the sick, and helping others."  
Guess what?  Doctors get up early and do surgeries for several hours.  Police, fire, and teachers, etc., work hard all day.  Athletes work hard. Why are we complaining about the work God has called us to do and expecting sympathy?

Christians, we must cut the drama and serve Jesus with everything you have; and when you are done serving, maintain the Christ-centered servant attitude Luke 17:10:

 "So you too, when you do all the things which are commanded you, say, 'We are unworthy slaves; we have done only that which we ought to have 

God Bless,

Pastor Kennedy (MZO)
