One of the most important things you’ll discover in life is that you’re not here to be self-absorbed and self-obsessed. The true way to success is by serving others; in other words by waking up every day and realizing it’s not about me. It’s about the people I work with, the people on my team, and my family. I’m here to serve them and pour into their lives. And the more I serve them, the more others serve me.
Jesus said it this way, “Give and it will be given to you.” We usually think that’s just about money, but it’s not. It’s about everything in life. Business book after business book, testimony after testimony keeps coming across our path telling us that the way to success is service. Today we talked about the most important thing in all of life. And that is serving God by serving His agenda. What is His agenda? Simply this: loving people, being involved in the three epic movements that have been going on since Jesus was on earth – redemption, reconciliation, and restoration.
So today we talked about the 7 reasons we serve. We used the word “reason” and made it an acrostic so it would make it easy for you to remember. As you listen to this talk, use it in your workplace, at home, raising your children, with your teams so you’ll all understand why service is the most important thing you’ll do in any given day.
