Designed to Serve
God created man to solve problems. Every man is created with built-in talent to contribute to the advancement of others. We are born on earth for a purpose greater than us. We are not just born to eat, drink and die. We are born for others. we are born to serve others and add value in their lives.
Man is designed and created to serve others. Man is only satisfied in adding value in others. If man follows selfishness, he will be miserable as his design doesn’t allow that. Even if man gets everything under the sun, he will never be satisfied unless. He is only satisfied and a life well-lived when he serves others and live for them.
All things are wearisome, more than one can say. The eye never has enough of seeing, nor the ear its fill of hearing. Ecclesiastes 1:8
If a man is promised to be provided with everything and is prevented from working and serving others, it will be like killing the person. Only provision can’t satisfy the person, unless he works and contribute to the wellbeing of others. That is the design of man. For the person who serve others, provision isn’t a question at all.
If a person has a poor-me mentality he will never have the confidence to serve others. He will die in trying to be satisfied by gathering things thinking that satisfaction is found in accumulating material things.
But those who understand the glory of serving and benefiting others will live to serve others. They are confidence in what they can do in the lives of others beyond themselves.
It is said that the legacy of the person who lives for himself will end at his funeral but the legacy of the person who live for others will echo long after the burial through the persons served by him. Jesus answered I am the way and the truth and the life.(John 14:6) encourages us to serve other following his examples.
just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many. Matthew 20:28
