Thinking Like a Servant

Okay, this will be the final comments (for now) on what I’ve learned about my
ministry from reading The Purpose Driven Life by Rick Warren: The following passage is from Chapter 34 titled Thinking Like A Servant.

Servants think about their work, not what others are doing. They don’t compare, criticize of complete with other servants or ministries They’re too busy doing the work God has given them.

Competition between God’s servants is illogical for many reasons: We’re all on the same team; our goal is to make God look good, not ourselves. We’ve all been given different assignments: and we’re all uniquely shaped. Paul said, “We will not compare ourselves with each other as if one of us were better and another worse. We have far more interesting things to do with our lives. Each of us is an original.” Galatians 5:26 (mes)

I think this is self-explanatory. I hope God will continue to bless your ministry as He shows you what He made you to do.
