how many servants?

or How many do I serve?

How do you 
measure greatness?

I have a quote in my Bible "Your greatness is not measured by how many servants you have but by how many men [people] you serve." I think my pastor said it, but I failed to write that part down.

Is this not what Jesus taught? sometimes I need to be reminded. I have no illusions of actually having servants {laughing hysterically}, but do I treat my family as my servants?  Or do I delight in serving them?

Mark 10:43b, 44 ...but whosoever will be great among you, shall be your minister: and whosoever of you will be the chiefest, shall be servant of all.

Mark 9:34b-35 ...for by the way they had disputed among themselves, who should be the greatest.  And he sat down, and called the twelve, and saith unto them, If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.

These are just some thoughts {among others} that have convicted me recently. When I truly seek to serve God with my day, I will readily serve my family. with a smile in my heart! I will be willing to serve others as He makes opportunity in my life. and I will teach my children that real JOY comes from serving God [without even telling them! though we ought to express it verbally, too].


  1. This is SO full of Wisdom!!! And blessing! It truly is freedom to walk with a heart of service through our days, seeking only His approval. :)
