Listen to the Message
The sun shines on everybody.
It talked a great deal about being a blessing to others.
"Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!" (Luke 2:14)
What's most interesting about this King of all Kings is that His
life was not a life a privilege.
"...The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve..." (Matthew 20:28)
"The student is not above the teacher, nor a servant above his master..." (Matthew 10:24)
"...Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant..." (Matthew 20:26)
But the real life of royalty is not about being served, it's about being a servant.
1. Rescue those you can rescue.
"You can't live a perfect day without doing something for someone who will never be able to repay you."
God inspired her to rescue a class full of children, and she did.
From time to time you'll have the opportunity to rescue someone.
2. Refresh those who need to be refreshed.
"A word of encouragement during a failure is worth more than an hour of praise after success."
That person is breathing.
No one needs your criticism.
"People have a way of becoming what you encourage them to be, not what you nag them to be."
3. Remain with those who need you.
People need to know that you will be around as long as it is up to you to be around.
How much you are there for the people who need you.
Living like a king's kid isn't about living a life of privilege and comfort.
Rescue. Refresh. Remain.
