God Blessed Morning Family!
The intent of a man defines his character. So many times I have heard people say, "I did this for them and therefore they owe me, or I helped them get a job, they should be grateful to me. . ." Doing things with an expectation of reciprocation in the form of gratitude or payment or just to hold it over someone as a reminder of the need for them to be appreciative of you is not the manner in which God has defined being of Service to one another. When we serve each other out of the kindness of our heart we are connecting with them on a Spiritual level and not looking for anything in return. In fact the true meaning of being of Service is to do it without hesitation or a desire for recognition or reciprocation. For to be of service to God and His Children in silence is one of the highest forms of Spiritual connection one can receive in the physical. ""Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:" Ephesians 6:6-7 When we serve God our rewards are not obtained through the recognition of man but through the glory we receive in our heart. To be of service with the expectation of more will only bring disappointment and grief when what one is expecting is not received. Be of service to God and you will never look for man to recognize your actions for the rewards you shall receive from God are unreachable and unexplainable by man. Be Still And Know That I Am. Amen. Hallelujah.
