In serving others, whatever a man sows, he will also reap
Then shall he answer them, saying. Verily I say unto you, inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me
In your pursuit to render service, you should be excellent in your delivery, being conscious of the Lord’s instruction in our opening scripture. Whatever you do for others to make their lives easier and more comfortable is unto the Lord. Therefore, it’s a great disservice to other citizens and the nation as a whole when your acts of service which should benefit them are rendered shabbily.
Understand that you’re part of a nation, and whatever service you render in politics, public service or in the private sector, to bring succor to others is a seed sown. Galatians 6:7 tells us, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” It’s like the story of a man who entrusted his son-in-law to execute a building project he had sufficiently financed. On completion, he execitedly asked the son-in-law if the house was top notch. “O, yes it is! We used the best materials and employed the best labour for the project,” answered the son-in-law. He then presented the house keys to his father-in-law, who received them and lovingly presented them back to him saying, “Take, the house is actually my gift to you!”
Surprisingly, rather than being ecstatic with joy, the young man’s countenance dropped. Bemused at his downcast and crestfallen son-in-law, the man asked, “What’s the matter? Don’t you like the house?” The young man, in his pitiful state then narrated to his father-in-la how he had used inferior and substandard labour to build the house. It wasn’t such a good house as he had claimed. He discovered to his regret that all the while he was building the house, he was actually building it for himself, and had cheated himself.
When you’re assigned to execute a task or project, do it excellently, whether or not you’re being monitored. This is because in serving others, you’re directly or indirectly improving your life. Never let inordinate passion to amass wealth propel you to render questionable service that’ll endanger the lives of others, or make the nation run a loss. Who knows, the victim of that collapsed building, fake drugs, bad roads etc, might just be a relative, loved one or the fellow who should save your life or that of your offspring in future. Whatever task or assignments you’ve set yourself to carry out, do it well, for at the end you’ll discover you did it for yourself.
Dear Heavenly Father! I thank You for the opportunity to serve people. I carry out my responsibilities with excellence, virtue, timeliness and precision, having in mind tht every service I render is a seed sown and therefore my harvest is inevitable, in Jesus’s Christ Name, Amen!
