Heart of Service

I have had an eventful couple of days since my trip to Brasil for the Fight Inequality Alliance Global Gathering

The climax for me was attending a boxing tournament in Dandora that I supported and getting the opportunity to preach at Karura Community Chapel, Ruaka Campus, a day after I got back. I spoke about the Heart of Service, that is, individual success and communal good and the spirit of stewardship. 

I learnt a lot from the gathering of individuals and organisations who came from all around the globe. They are investing their time, resources and knowledge into working towards an equal society. Why do they do this?

When, no one will ever notice or appreciate their efforts in contributing to a better world.

One thing was consistent among all of them. They have the spirit of stewardship. They understand that the time, resources and strength they use for this work is a gift. 

This is the attitude that keeps them going and giving even when it's hard. This is what keeps them humble when all the praise of a good job done comes their way. They know that they are just a 'whistle', like Jay Z once said, a vessel for air to pass through. 

They recognise that they have been entrusted with the work, resources and opportunities for the betterment of others.

And just imagine, our stewardship for the betterment of the earth and our communities is a God given purpose.

 

May we all walk well in our service towards one another. 

 

“Nikiziangalia mbingu zako, kazi ya vidole vyako, Mwezi na nyota ulizoziratibisha; Mtu ni kitu gani hata umkumbuke,

Na binadamu hata umwangalie? Umemfanya mdogo kuliko Mungu; Umemvika taji la utukufu na heshima; Umemtawaza juu ya kazi za mikono yako; Umevitia vitu vyote chini ya miguu yake. Kondoo, na ng'ombe wote pia;

Naam, na wanyama wa porini; Ndege wa angani, na samaki wa baharini;

Na kila kipitacho njia za baharini. Wewe, Mungu, Bwana wetu, Jinsi lilivyo tukufu jina lako duniani kote!” - Zaburi 8:3-9

 

“When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place, what is man that you are mindful of him, and the son of man that you care for him? Yet you have made him a little lower than the heavenly beings and crowned him with glory and honor. You have given him dominion over the works of your hands; you have put all things under his feet, all sheep and oxen, and also the beasts of the field,

the birds of the heavens, and the fish of the sea, whatever passes along the paths of the seas. O LORD, our Lord,how majestic is your name in all the earth!” - Psalm 8:3-9
