“You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love.”

– Galatians 5:13

Today I will conclude our study of three cultural keys. The first key is the importance of connecting with others. The second key we discussed yesterday highlighted that we are antifragile. Last but not least, Jesus told us we’re not here to be served, we’re here to serve others. Servant leadership is all about other people. Jesus lived life powerfully by serving others. There is a Bible account illustrating this and is repeated in both the book of Matthew and Mark. In this account, two disciples of Jesus were ambitiously positioning themselves in the anticipated kingdom where Jesus would rule. Jesus then called all the disciples together to teach them the concept of servant leadership.

Jesus shared from Mark Chapter 10: “Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” From this concept, we can find the immense purpose and joy of finding a need and filling it. If your goal is to learn about other people and show a genuine interest in them, those people will receive real power. These actions show the value of people.

Friend, the cultural keys of connecting with others, being antifragile, and walking in servant leadership, testify that God loves people. Let’s receive and implement the empowerment each component has for us. So let’s serve and mentor people, and give to others in need. You’ll be so grateful as you develop these strengths.


Jesus, show me how to become a servant leader. Help me to have your heart to give to others in need.


Have you experienced a trial and afterward realized that you are antifragile? Do you recognize situations where the Lord has made you strong and steady?

  1. We live in a remote place. I don’t have a car, so makes it difficult to make friends. At one occasion we met one of our neighbors and the lady offered to be a Friend of mine
    I was thrilled, but my roommates (husband and son)) for unknown reason not. Probably, because they don’t miss people as I do, I would like to have at least one lady friend. Recently I baked a banana cake and have eager to take her some. I am getting up the first one, so I could leave beside them to notice. Maybe that isn’t sounds nice, but I felt i need to do it. Her husband opened the door and sad “My wife had complicated open heart surgery month ago but come in to meet her. She was resting in the recliner and looked happy to see me. After 15-20 minutes talking, I noticed that she got tired and while I was getting ready to leave, she asked me to visit her again. Yesterday I went to the post office to mail couple of cards: one for her, another to dying friend from CA, Financial support to FL and one hundred DOLLARS to my sister, whose husband died recently in Slovakia. Interestingly this money came from my retirement fond received monthly from Slovakia. Wasn’t that a good feeling? Helping the less fortunate.

    1. Yes it is. I was driving yesterday and while I was waiting for the light to turn green, a malnourished woman with her dog was holding a sign that said Even 25cents will help. I’m hungry.

      So I’d already passed by her and God impressed upon me to give her my untouched ice cream I had in a plastic glass. So I made a u-turn and gave it to her. THAT would have made me feel guilty if I had driven home and eaten it myself. I felt obedient!!!

  2. Dear reverend Bobby Shuller,
    I want to thank you for your godly work. Sometimes I feel that they are perfectly fit to my needs, which would take extra effort and time from you. I am so grateful to you to do that. Your Devotionals makes me think deeper about my actions, trying to change me to be a better person. Thank you so much to you and your wife Hannah, who is always standing by firmly with you. I was so happy to see your darling little boy – healthy again and I wish his seizures to disappear for good. God, please bless richly Booby’s family.
