Be a SERVANT

When we think of the word SERVANT, most of the time a negative connotation goes along with it.  There are many words that are used in it’s place:  minion, lackey, attendant, maid…slave.   See, negative.

As a student council advisor, I try my best to encourage the ones involved that being a leader means serving others.  The council is not just about painting signs or having meetings.  It’s about serving others.

This is the same in life… We are not here to just live.  We are here to live for others.  We are here to serve.  We are here to make this life better for everyone, not just for #1.  We are to put others before us.

As a servant, we are to love others as God loves us.  We are not #1.  We are #3, or 4…or 5 …or ….  you get it?  God, of course, should be our #1.  THEN, all will fall into the place they need to be.  Others should be next #2, 3, 4, so on.

I’m not saying you shouldn’t take care of yourself, but when you help others, you help yourself.   When you serve others, you serve yourself.   God knows your heart.  He knows your intentions and your service.  He knows.

This helps explain:

Be a servant.

Tomorrow is MLK, Jr. National Day of Service.  I’m excited to read about all the things that people do to serve others on this day that has been inspired by the life of Mr. King.

I want to end the blog today with a great Martin Luther King, Jr. quote.  

“LIFE’S MOST PERSISTENT AND URGENT QUESTION IS:

WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR OTHERS?”
