Servant-hood : Part 1

I was recently walking with my friend around the area we stay, having a DMC (Deep Meaningful Conversation 😉 ) and minding our own business. As we were walking, I noticed a nearby stationary car had its lights on. Distracted by the lights, I decided to walk up to the driver, who was still in the car, and notify him; at which he was surprised and switched them off.

Had he continued to sit there in the car and not realize that his lights were still on, it would have costed him later as he would have to find a way to revive his car battery.

On walking back to my friend to continue the DMC, this was the first thing they said, “Viv, you have such a big heart! I don’t think I would have ever thought to do such a thing!”. As usual, I laughed, as if there is ever a time I’m not laughing.

But what struck me was the statement more than anything; it caught me off-guard. This is because I didn’t realize that I have a big heart while doing it but rather I was just serving him, by doing the right thing, just as I am commanded to do so.

We are all called to serve and more so serve those who cannot help themselves. That our primary mission, as Christians, is to minister to people, to serve Christ, and this is through people. The Bible tells us in Matthew 20:26but whoever would be great among you must be your servant“.

We, just like the disciples in that passage of scripture, have a hard time understanding this concept of servant-hood. But in essence, it is just doing the right thing just because it is the right thing to do. Not out of admiration from people, or gratitude, but just because it is the right thing to do.
