Luke 17: 5-10 “Suppose one of you has a servant plowing or looking after the sheep. Will he say to the servant when he comes in from the field, ‘Come along now and sit down to eat’? Won’t he rather say, ‘Prepare my supper, get yourself ready and wait on me while I eat and drink; after that you may eat and drink’? Will he thank the servant because he did what he was told to do? So you also, when you have done everything you were told to do, should say, ‘We are unworthy servants; we have only done our duty.”
When we think of four letter words, we often think of expletives’ and cartoons that show symbols such as #%@& $ instead of words.
Pastor gave an illustration: A Pastor’s wife plopped into her chair and said, “I am so tired.” Her husband said, I am the one who should be tired, I held three services and preached 5 times today.” She said, “I am tired because it was my duty to listen to you through them all.”
There are many types of duty, Jury duty, duty to pay our taxes, parental duty, social and Christian duties. The word DUTY can cause us a heavy load to bear. Some even have a duty to duty !!
We work hard in church activities, and we do show appreciation for our volunteers, as this is a management tool.
