Selfish service is impressed with the “big deal.” True service finds it almost impossible to distinguish the small from the large service.
Selfish service requires external rewards. True service rests contented in hiddenness.
Selfish service is highly concerned about results. True service is free of the need to calculate results.
Selfish service picks and chooses whom to serve. True service is indiscriminate in its ministry.
Selfish service is affected by moods and whims. True service ministers simply and purely.
“The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish Christian service.” - Billy Graham.
Phil 2:3 (ERV): “In whatever you do, don’t let selfishness or pride be your guide. Be humble, and honor others more than yourselves.”
“The supreme test of service is this: For whom am I doing this? Much that we call service to Christ is not such at all....If we are doing this for Christ, we shall not care for human reward or even recognition.” - A.T. Pierson.
