God’s Servant

“Do you know who I am?” The executive brazenly defied a police officer responding to reports she had become unruly and drunk on an airline flight. When confronted, she lashed out, breaking his glasses. Then, she threatened to call a camera crew vowing to use her influence to ruin his life. She boasted, “You’ll lose your job.”

But the officer wasn’t intimidated, and the executive was arrested. She would pay for her actions. She wasn’t as invincible as she imagined. Was she always so arrogant? Perhaps not. But she had developed an unhealthy pride.

Once, all of us were infants, helpless and vulnerable. Throughout our lives, all of us have been beginners, apprentices learning a craft. As entry-level professionals, many are thrilled with the opportunity for a job. But along the way, some, like this executive, become arrogant.

How easily we can change after we achieve success, after we advance in our careers and receive power and authority and become known as experts. In the process, we can become like Saul – no longer humble but proud, not eager to serve, but self-centered, possessive, living for ourselves, depending on our own strength and resources.

This can happen to anybody – even you. Seek to stay humble before God. Submit your life to the lordship of Jesus Christ. Pray and seek first God’s Kingdom. Remember, everything belongs to Him, and you are His servant.
