Be Inspired To Serve
“A faithful man shall abound with blessings: but he that maketh haste to be rich shall not be innocent” (Proverbs 28:20)
No matter the job or business you do, don’t let your utmost motivation stem from how much money you desire to make. Rather, be motivated by the dream of service; be inspired to serve! The Bible says a faithful man shall abound with blessings; that means he’ll surely prosper. A faithful man is a man that serves. If you’re a wife, mother, grandmother, politicians, student, civil servant, civil right leader, policeman, business man or business woman, let serving people be your dream. Become people and service – conscious.
God is more mindful and concerned about people than anything else. So, when you’re concerned about serving people through your work, God will be concerned about your success and prosperity – everything you do will prosper. Greed is what has stopped many from serving their nation and people the way they should. The undue ambition for gain and inordinate desire to amass wealth is an enemy of success; never let it rule your life.
As Christians we’ve been called to service; of both God and mankind. Be inspired by the importance of your job or business for the betterment of society. Don’t let the desire to have things be your driving force in life. Daisy Osborne said, “Work on being and not on having; for with what you are, you will have.” Don’t try to have cars, money, a vast estate or business empire; don’t try to have anything! Become something first and you will have.
The question you should always ask yourself is “Who am I? What have I made out of myself? How have I invested in my personality to make myself relevant and indispensable to my world?” That’s what you need to do; investing in your personality to make you needed, relevant and indispensable to your generation. That’s the mentality of a service – conscious person.
Dear Heavenly Father!
I pray for increased grace and wisdom to serve You and at the same time be relevant to my generation. I ask that by Your Spirit, You help me affect my world and impact everyone I meet with the investment of my personality, in Jesus Christ Name I pray, Amen!
May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!
