Is serving what I want to do?
To serve or not to serve? But is that the real question? Do you believe in what you are serving? Regardless of what you are thinking of serving; God, company or country, the real question is “do I believe in it”. Do I agree with the direction and beliefs of that which I am purposing to serve?
You are correct; there are times when we must act on faith trusting that those who are leading understand something we currently do not or see something we are not able to see. But that should not be the continuous case. Transparence in leaders is not just a slogan but should be a life style. Those of us who follow need to know what and who we are following.
Loyalty is the result of continued reinforcement of fulfilled expectations. Where do your loyalties lie? Perhaps even more importantly why have you placed them there? We serve that which we choose to serve but that service can falter if we perceive a shift in leadership or in direction.
If you are a pastor, a leader in a company or an officer in the military as you serve and lead, let your loyalties be clear. There are many who are watching, looking to answer the question “what shall I serve.” Let your service be transparent and your reasons apparent, you are fulfilling expectations.
We all serve something, someone or some ideal. Just be sure that what you serve helps you sleep when you finally get to bed.
