Into the Love of Christ
In our world, not too many people want to be servants. Somehow most people think they are above that. Even those who work in the service industry often talk about getting out and doing better. So it should come as no surprise when our children balk at the role of servitude.
Being a servant requires giving up self. From the earliest of ages self is our main focus in life. To overcome self, takes training, practice and a willing heart. That is true of our children also. We can’t simply expect them to wake up one day and decide to be servants. Rather, we must set the example, the teaching and the love for them to follow into their adulthood.
