A great friend asked me at the end of the year last year what my (spiritual) goals were for the new year. Last year was a *rough* year and little did she know she was setting me up for what would be the theme of this very year.
"I just want to learn to serve, yano. I feel like servanthood is such a lost art and I want to learn how to be a okay with just being a servant. After all, it's what Jesus asked of us, right?" I responded. She nodded her head and simply said, "Wow, yeah... that's so true."
I am servant to my God first, my husband second, my children third and the world fourth. Nevertheless, I am servant by calling.
I hoped to use an appropriate definition for "servant" or "serve" at this point in the post, yet when looking through the dictionary, I definitely feel as though the English language has been compromised and Scriptural words are now used for common or negative concepts. The definitions just didn't encompass the fullness of what a servant is.
