TGIF…part 2

Posted: June 13, 2008 in Uncategorized

Never ever, and I mean never eat if you are not hungry. Trust me!  I knew it was my regular lunch time, and decided to walk to the cafeteria here at work.  Well, today happen to be Pasta day.   So, I ordered some ziti with broccoli, mushrooms, peas, chicken, and marinara sauce.  Big mistake.

I am not feeling too well now.  I’m not sure if it was that I ate too much or if it was that I ate this in the first place.  I even stopped and had some left on my plate and wound up tossing it in the trash.

Right now, I just feel like I am about to get sick as anything.  I am trying not to think about it, but the more I work my stomach is “gurgling” away.

So, I thought I would put Part 2 on the blog and remind you all, if you are not really hungry do not force yourself to eat.  It’s not worth it! 

Maybe next time, I will just get a couple glasses of water and call it a meal.

Depending on how my afternoon goes, there may or may not be a part 3.

    The Low Rank

    But among you it will be different. Those who are the greatest among you should take the lowest rank, and the leader should be like a servant.
    Luke 22:26

    This verse states a view that is so different than what the world practices. According to the world, a leader is to have special privileges and to be treated better than everyone else. A former employee of mine thought that she didn’t need to do as much work because she had “paid her dues.” It only caused dissent with the rest of the employees. Wouldn’t you love to arrive at work someday and find your boss cleaning? Or how about the husband who doesn’t feel like he needs to help around the house because he is the “king of his castle”? Wouldn’t you love to have your husband cook you dinner after you’ve spent a long day with the kids? And what if he did that often? Now that’s serving up love!

    Why are these scenarios so unusual? I think that it’s because we have a messed up idea of leadership—and a messed up idea about service. The world seems to see service as a form of weakness. Jesus tells us and shows us that service is a sign of strength—it takes inner strength to serve those around us. It’s a very humbling experience. Leaders who think they are above serving are simply afraid of their weaknesses.

    Christ tells us that our leadership should be different than what the world expects. We shouldn’t gloat over being above anyone else but use our place in life to help others. The best leaders or teachers are the ones who can admit when they are wrong or they don’t know the answer. Then, because they are leaders, they work to find the correct answers and lead people down the right path.

    Look at the leadership examples around you. Do they tend to be humble or haughty? Take a look at your own leadership style. If you’re a parent, how do you lead your children? As a wife, how do you serve your husband? Husbands, how do you serve your wives? Service isn’t just a sign of humility but of love as well. Good leadership requires love. It’s a love outside of us—God’s love. Ask God for his love to empower and guide your leadership and relationships with people. Follow him, for he is our ultimate servant-leader.
