A Servant’s Heart

“When pride comes, disgrace follows, but with humility comes wisdom.”

Be wary of ambition for the world’s applause is deceitful and deceptive.  Seek to serve not to rule for pride comes in ruling. However, serving produces love.

Awards stir the flames of pride. Jesus taught us to put out those flames.  He said, “So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty” (Luke 17:10).

Money, fame, power tempt our hearts to take confidence in our abilities and if left unchecked, pride will follow.  Service, on the other hand breeds love for humanity and births a sense of gratitude for life.

“If you want to be great, serve; anyone can be great because anyone can serve,” (Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.). Wisdom comes from service because by serving others you enter into their collective experiences. You learn how to overcome challenges and how to have patience through difficulty.

Be wary of ambition for the world’s applause is deceitful and deceptive. Seek to serve!
