Today's Insight from Chuck Swindoll

 

Diligence and Faithfulness
by Charles R. Swindoll

Serve the LORD with gladness: 
come before him with joyful singing.
Psalm 100:2

Servanthood implies diligence, faithfulness, loyalty, and humility.

Servants don't compete . . . or grandstand . . . or polish their image . . . or grab the limelight. They know their job, they admit their limitations, they do what they do quietly and consistently.

Servants cannot control anyone or everything, and they shouldn't try.

Servants cannot change or "fix" people. 

Servants cannot concern themselves with who gets the credit.

Let's serve . . . in the name of Jesus.
