Pastor Rick Warren, in a recent newsletter, discussed what it means to be a servant. He says real servants pay attention to needs and are always on the lookout for ways to help others. When servants see a need to help others, they seize the moment to meet it. That is just as the Bible commands us so, whenever we have the opportunity, we must do what is good for everyone, especially for the family of believers. The following verses came from Pastor Warren.
Never tell your neighbors to wait until tomorrow if you can help them now.
Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.
Dr. Lester Spencer, who is Senior Pastor at St. James United Methodist Church, sent in two verses for this issue. It’s absolutely true that we can rely on God to take care of us and provide our needs regardless of our circumstances. Lester wants to encourage all of us by sending in the verses he selected. He reminds us that – despite the disaster on the Gulf, the weak economy, the wars in the middle East, the prospects of summer storms brewing in the tropics and any other problems that might arise – God is still in control. We can all praise God and be thankful that we have a Creator and a Savior who is bigger than all of our problems, regardless of how big or how seemingly impossible to solve. We can trust Him, and we can be optimistic, hopeful and positive because of our mighty God.
Trust in the LORD with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding.
These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.
My son, Jere Locke Beasley, Jr., sent in a verse that just happens to be one of my favorites. Jere is with Boosters, Inc., a Montgomery firm specializing in the sale of promotional materials of all kinds. Commercial screen printing service is one of the firm’s specialties. The company’s website is www.boostersinc.net. Jere also is affiliated with Service Printing Company, a firm owned by my good friend Bob Meredith, that has been in business since 1958.
But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ.
I Corinthians 15:57
