The Servant Spirit

Don’t look out only for your own interests, but take an interest in others, too.

Philippians 2:4 (NLT)


“What did you do on your day off Private Elkins?” asked Army Sergeant Henry Doyle. Private Albert Elkins was quiet for a moment before he answered.

“Believe it or not Sarge I helped Private Pearson in the motor pool clean up. He was short a man due to an illness.

“Worked in the motor pool? Private, it is most usual that anyone would do someone else’s job especially work in the motor pool area. What did you do? How long did you work?”

“I swept and mopped the floors then dumped the trash. I worked for about 4 hours. Hey, Sarge, I’ve always been told it’s a good thing to help your buddies when they need some serious help. Private Pearson has helped me before when I needed help. Do you know he helped me inspect weapons even cleaning several? Our section passed inspection mainly because of his efforts. This unit does well because we back up each other when it is necessary.”

“I wasn’t aware of this going on,” responded Sergeant Doyle.

“We don’t think we owe each other anything. We did it for the good of the unit. Did you know that as Christians we are to cheerfully assist each other?”

“Good point, Private! Good point!”

When Sergeant Doyle is asked about his unit’s espirit de corps, he responds that he has a well functioning unit that will even take their days off to help each other.


Prayer: Lord, You showed us by Your good works that we should do likewise. Let us never
forget to serve each other cheerfully in Your Name.
