A Lesson from a Book

Right now we are reading through the ‘Making Brothers and Sisters Best Friends’ book. Today we read a section about being servants to our siblings.

Here is a servant checklist…

Knows that all assignments are actually from God

Will be quick to volunteer

Considers his assignment important

Takes orders

Does not desire to have authority

Will do what others do not or will not do

Enjoys meetings needs

Doesn’t need recognition

Will voluntarily serve with out pay

Doesn’t seek higher status

Will do more than is required

Does not have his own selfish ambitions

Will serve anyone- even those whom others don’t like to serve

Is willing to be treated like a servant

Does not seek the ‘big’ and ‘important’ assignments

Will serve with a joyful attitude

Will put his whole heart into each task

Thinks of others before himself

Desires that his master receives the credit

Desires that God receives the glory

Here’s a scripture from Matthew 25:21:   His lord said unto him, Well done, thou good and faithful servant: thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
