Be a Servant of All
When he was born without legs, his parents threw him over a cliff to be eaten by wild animals. Somehow he survived and became a bitter beggar on the streets. A believer gave him some money, but when this Christian tried to read Scripture to him, the beggar exploded in anger, “If there is a God, why did He let all of these bad things happen to me?!” Undeterred, the believer returned daily to read Scripture to him.
One day the beggar exclaimed, “I don’t like your reading, but when I hear God’s Word my heart burns within me because I know it is true.” Soon the beggar accepted Christ as his Savior and became a dynamic witness of the Gospel.
“. . . If any man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all” (Mark 9:35).
