Topic: Two Kinds Of People [Saturday September 23, 2017]
Scripture: I have found David my servant; with my holy oil have I anointed him. Psalm 89:20.
Thought For The Day: There are two kinds of people in this world; those who live for service and those who live for status.
I have discovered that there are two kinds of people in this world – those who live for service and those who live for status.
The status-oriented people cannot attract the anointing of God in their lives while the service-oriented people are candidates of God’s anointing.
According to our anchor scripture, David was not a status-oriented person. Rather, he had the heart of service. This is the willingness to do something for God and for your generation not for personal gain or reward. Nobody paid David before he was ready to serve his generation.
We also see in scriptures, the same heart of service in the life of Joseph. In the prison, he served every prisoner who was brought in like himself even though he was their master (Genesis 40:4). Naturally, when people are appointed to be leaders over their fellow men, what they do is exercise lordship over the people under them but Joseph’s case was different. He served the prisoners that were under his control.
Beloved, who are you serving? What is the state of your heart? When last did you offer an act of service and you are not interested in anyone knowing about it?
Remember this: There are two kinds of people in this world; those who live for service and those who live for status.
- Make up your mind not to live for status.
Live to serve others.
Prayer: O LORD, I ask for a heart of service. Destroy every craving for status in me, LORD, in Jesus’ Name.
