A portion of this encouragement is taken from Pastor Rick Warren’s Daily Devotional
Are you a servant? Not in a paid since but do you feel that you have a servant’s heart, one that cherishes in sincerity coming to the aid of another in some small or significant manner? If so, never EVER assume that you are not making a difference, for Pastor Rick Warren shares that servants do their best with what they have. Per him, “Servants don’t make excuses, procrastinate, or wait for better circumstances. Servants never say, “One of these days ” or “When the time is right .” They just do what needs to be done.”
Beloved, as far as God is concerned, He expects you to do what you can, with what you have, wherever you are. Some people do not serve or give unto others because they fear they are not good enough to serve or they cannot give enough of themselves to make a difference. I’d like to challenge you on that. From a pleasant greeter in a store or church to a postman that smiles as s/he delivers the mail to a team leader or CEO who has lunch delivered for their team members, all are examples of service, of acts of kindness, and they stretch from the seemingly insignificant to the obviously appreciated. You don’t have to have celebrity status to serve in your church, your community, or have a title to noticeably deliver a servant’s attitude at work; you simply need to have the mindset and the heart. Here’s a cheerful salute to a sincere and genuine heart in all that you do. Tootles!
