If today you will be a servant to these people and serve them and give them a favorable answer, they will always be your servants.1 Kings 12:7
But the King did not listen to the people. The King answered the people harshly.1 Kings 12:13 & 15
Lord, may I have a servant’s heart today. May I seek to serve others. Please help me to answer in kindness, not harshly.
Whatever we may be doing — even eating, drinking, or washing disciple’s feet — we have to take the initiative and realize and recognize Jesus in it. – Oswald Chambers
