SERVING WITHOUT EXPECTATION
By Henry Jaegers
Then Daniel answered and said before the king, ďKeep your gifts for yourself, or give your rewards to someone else; however, I will read the inscription to the king and make the interpretation known to him.Ē (Daniel 5:17)
It doesnít matter how great the reward, faithfulness to declare Godís message is all that matters. Does the king thing that his rewards will cause Godís servant to declare something that will ease his conscience? The message is not intended to give Belshazzar a chance to change his mind, (he already made that choice) but one causing him to face the consequences of that choice. Daniel did not serve God for selfish gain. He was there representing His God to a Godless king and thatís all that mattered.
Speaking Godís message has its risks and Daniel was courageous to speak Godís message, not fearing what may happen to him. He had a purpose firm and was confident that God was there to protect him. His Name ďGod is my deliverer ď certainly meant something now.
It is not uncommon in our time to see so called servants of God in the ministry proclaiming a Gospel declaring that being wealthy is part of the Good News. I personally have known some who base Godís call upon how generous the church is.
To the selfless servant of God, we have this promise: ďCast thy bread upon the waters for thou shall find it again after many daysĒ. (Ecclesiastes 11:1) The idea is to plentifully share the blessing that God has enabled us to have and He will give the return in His time and in His way. Whether it is great or small, all should be gratefully received. Some may not come until eternity, but His promise is true.
