We can serve others well when we actively decide to take on the role of a servant.
This seems obvious, but missing this step can lead to doing more harm than good.
When we study the life of Jesus, we find countless examples where he took on the role of the servant. From choosing to wash the feet of his disciples to the very decision of coming to earth and living as an ordinary human, Christ continually humbled himself for the sake of others and switched places with people, most times in the lowliest of positions.
Are we placing into Service those who are willing to do the same?

“Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it.” – Matthew 10:39
But I will sing of thy might; I will sing aloud of thy steadfast love in the morning. For thou hast been to me a fortress and a refuge in the day of my distress.
There are stories woven throughout Scripture of God’s great love for his people. We see him parting seas, crushing boulders, and quietening storms. He feeds the hungry and heals the sick. He cries with those who mourn, comforts the lonely, and stands with the forgotten. His character is consistent of a loving and faithful God who meets his people in their time of need.
Why then, do we so easily forget that the God we serve is the same Godthat has always been?
