A Servant's Heart

You may have heard the term a servantís heart. What does that really mean? The Bible says, ďBe devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lordís people who are in need. Practice hospitality.Ē When you think about this, how do you measure up?

When I was growing up a very good friend of the family was a perfect example of one who lived with a servantís heart. She was always criticized and told that she needed to learn to say no. She never thought of herself. All she knew was, if God was calling her, she would answer. You could always depend on her. To her dying day she always thought of others with love and compassion and how she could serve them. Understand she could have said no, she had 6 kids of her own, but God used her in a quiet but mighty way.

I have always wondered if I would be considered a person with a servantís heart. I am always concerned for the well-being of others but it is not always my first thought. I am embarrassed to say this, but I believe God has given me a different gift and I will follow His lead. I am good at what I do, but God knows that I am His willing servant. If He calls, at some time, to start living with the kind of heart we are talking about, He will show me and I will do it.

My soul-sister is another example of a woman with a servantís heart. She stepped into a situation that was very difficult which could have caused many others to turn away. She knew God was calling her and she did it without question or doubt. This gift is given by God and the only thing you and I have to do is act, which is what she did. That is what serving isÖsee a need and take action. When we continue down lifeís journey God will show you how you are to act. Your heart needs to be connected to God. I love this part of the verse so Iím going to repeat it, ďBe joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lordís people who are in need. Practice hospitality.Ē

Next time you feel called; donít hesitate like many of us do. Take the example of the two women I refer to and act with a servantís heart. You are once again praising God when you step up. Not to be noticed, but to do the right thing. Every day I ask God to show me the opportunities He has waiting for me. As I continue to walk along His path, I know He will bless me and in turn use the situation to His glory. He is mighty and is worthy of my praise and worship. How about you?
