The Heart of a Servant

1.    Choose to walk in love with those you work with everyday.

– “For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work,” James 3:16.
– “Let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath,” James 1:19.
– “Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned.  Forgive, and you will be forgiven,” Luke 6:37.
– “Love suffers long and is kind; love does not envy; love does not parade itself, is not puffed up; does not behave rudely, does not seek its own, is not provoked, thinks no evil; does not rejoice in iniquity, but rejoices in the truth; bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never fails,” 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.

2.    Be willing to do whatever is asked of you.

– No part is unimportant, even if it is small.
– “No, much rather, those members of the body which seem to be weaker are necessary.  And those members of the body which we think to be less honorable, on these we bestow greater honor,” 1 Cor. 12:22-23.

3.    Stay teachable and receive correction.

– “Give instruction to a wise man, and he will be still wiser,” Proverbs 9:9.
– “Whoever loves instruction loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is stupid (no offense, see point 1 above),” Proverbs 12:1.

4.    Be faithful.

– If you say you’re going to do something, follow through!
Be on time!
Be prepared!

– God increases the abilities of the faithful. (2 Tim. 2:2)
