Midweek Message 12-27-2017

Baxter Black says that 10% of the people do 90% of the work and they do it for nothing.  They are always willing and ready to help. They are called volunteers.  What causes a person to serve his fellow man?  The Bible says it comes from the heart.  Jesus said in Matthew 20: 26-28, ” Whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant.  Then He said He did not come to be served but to serve.”   Can you imagine what we could do for God & for others if we all took this verse to heart.  It is interesting that the dictionary defines servant as someone hired to work.  Baxter Black defines servant this way:  VOL from the Greek meaning to work like a horse,  UNTEER meaning :  without pay.  It seems to me that if 90% of us would be willing to serve,  the 10% who serve now could stop having to work like a horse.  Consider serving and in the mean time,  “Keep Spurring each other on.”   God bless you all as we approach the new year.  Louis
