A healthy family has an attitude of service to each other and to the world outside the family. Read the biographies of men and women who have lived lives of sacrificial service and you will find that most of them grew up in families that nurtured the idea of service as virtuous. In every vocation, those who truly excel are those who have a genuine desire to serve others.
The most notable physicians view their vocation as a calling to serve the sick and diseased. Truly great politicians see themselves as ‘public servants’. The greatest educators gain their rewards from seeing students reach their potential. Let’s pray today that God will give us the attitude of Christ who said, “I did not come to be served, but to serve.”
