Servant Earns Way to the Top

Reading Luke 19 and the Parable of the Talents so I could prepare a BibleRhymes version of this story, forced me to reflect on myself.

I want to make sure every seed that I plant will grow something pure. I want the harvest from my life to benefit society. I want to be a servant.

O LORD, truly I am thy servant; and the son of thine handmaid: thy hast loosed my bonds. (Psalm 116: 16)

At this point in my life, seeds that I’m planting are coming in the form of poetry and illustrations (in aggregate, the seeds are books).

If you read Bible stories, you’ll love BibleRhymes’ Parable of Talents. If you don’t read Bible stories, you should check all of this site to see what you’ve been missing. It’s good, I promise.

Below are a few Bible verses that I like and are related to servants.

If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be; if any man serve me, him will my Father honor. (John 12: 26)

And the lord said unto the servant, Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled. (Luke 14: 23)

Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: (6) Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: (7) But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: (8) And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross. (Philippians 2: 5-8)
