Buying the Fridge

Bob FranquizLeadership

One of the things that happens to a Pastor of a growing church is people start doing things for you. Staff, leaders and the congregation want to be kind and honor me as the Pastor, so I rarely lift heavy boxes or take out trash. 

Here's the challenge we face as Pastors: we still need to model servanthood. So the other day after church I went and bought the fridge for the new office. I installed it and filled it with delicious drinks for our staff. 

I was happy to do it and I share this story for no other reason than to say that we have to be intentional about being servants. Because if we aren't, others will do all the serving and we'll miss out on the opportunity to serve the Lord by serving others.
