You serve yourself in Serving Others

“Then He will answer them, saying, ‘Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me. Matthew 25:45

In your pursuit to give service, you have to be excellent in your delivery, being conscious of the Lord’s admonition in the scripture above. Whatever you do for people to make their lives easier and more comfortable is unto the Lord……Understand that whatever service you give to bring happiness to others is a seed sown. Galatians 6:7 tells us “Do not be deceived, God is not mocked; for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap.”

It’s like the story of a man who entrusted a building project which he had sufficiently financed to his son-in-law. On completion, he excitedly asked the son-in-law if the house was top-notch. “O, yes it is! We used the best materials and employed the best labour for the project,” answered the son-in-law. He then presented the house keys to the father in-law, who received them and lovingly presented them back to him saying “Take, the house is actually my gift to you!” Surprisingly, not being ecstatic with joy, the young man’s countenance dropped. Bemused at his downcast and crestfallen son-in-law, the man asked, “What’s the matter? Don’t you like the house?” The young man, in his pitiful state then narrated to his father-in-law how he had used inferior materials and substandard labour to build the house. It wasn’t after all such a good house as he had claimed. He discovered to his regret that all the while he was building the house; he was actually building it for himself, and had cheated himself.

When you’re assigned to execute a task or project, this is because in serving others, you’re being monitored. This is because in serving others, you’re directly or indirectly improving your life…

Whatever task or assignment you’ve set yourself to carry out, do it well, for at the end you’ll discover you did it for yourself…
