Topic: The Way of Service [Thursday March 23, 2017]
Scripture: “So Joseph found favor in his sight, and served him. Then he made him overseer of his house, and all that he had he put under his authority” Genesis 39:4
Thought For The Day: There can be no quality leadership without quality service. Until you have served successfully, you cannot lead effectively.
The word ‘service’, in this context, connotes the act of going out of one’s way to be useful to someone or an organization in achieving and satisfying the desired need(s) of that person or organization. Literarily, service is assisting the visions, desires and aspirations to see fulfilment.
There can be no quality leadership without quality service. Until you have served successfully, you cannot lead effectively.
The truth is, there can be no wasted service. How you serve today determines how you will be served tomorrow. What you make happen for others, God will make happen for you. (Mike Murdock).
Assisting others to see the fulfilment of their vision makes God assist you in the fulfilment of your vision. Joseph interpreted the dreams of the butler and the baker, the outcome was that God interpreted his dreams.
Zig Ziglar once said, “You will get all you want in life, if you help enough other people get what they want.”
My counsel is: do not struggle for status; struggle for service and service will give you status. Those who struggle for status only end as statues. That shall not be your portion in Jesus’ Name.
Remember this: There can be no quality leadership without quality service. Until you have served successfully, you cannot lead effectively.
1. Make yourself available to serve in any capacity.
2. Obey the Word of God.
