This piece of advice is a great one for you but also for the entire family. Start early letting children know, “A servant fits anywhere.” Too many children as well as adults feel as if they don’t fit in. Many concern themselves with where they’re from, what they do and who they are when in fact the only thing that matters is whose they are.
See Jesus is the greatest servant that ever lived. We are to be changing into His image—therefore we ought to look more like Him every day. So if you don’t know how to behave at a dinner party, be a servant. If you question how to be a good friend ask yourself what would Jesus do. Want to be a great spouse serve your husband or wife. Setting an example is a way of planting seed for your future. Others see you serve and it motivates them to serve as well.
Mark 10:45 (KJV) “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve…”
John 12:26 (KJV) “If anyone serves me, he must follow me; and where I am, there will my servant be also. If anyone serves me, the Father will honor him.”
