Mother's Day
This year, more so than any of the recent past, it's really not about "stuff", e.g.,
what we can purchase to affirm those we love. In truth, the world would cease to exist without
mothers (literally!). In actual practice, however, motherhood can tax the nerves. Here's a truth
that deals with the difference between Servility and Servanthood.
In both cases you DO the same things, but the underlying attitudes (which feed your BE) are
vastly different.
Servility is "have-to" based, so the focus is on the person doing. What do I HAVE to do; why do
I have to do it; for whom do I have to do it. It is motivated by performance.
Servanthood is "want-to" based, so the focus is on others. What can I do, What do you need,
How can I help. It is motivated by genuine love.
As usual, there is always the genuine and the imitation in the spirit world. God designed
servanthood; the devil mimics that with servility. In the latter our enemy plays into the
fallenness of our nature, which only continues to bruise us. Here, a person eventually feels used
and devalued because the whole foundation is wrong. The dysfunction of servility makes it easy
to skew or relinquish boundaries, which opens one up to guilt-based manipulation.
GOD is the only One I know who can USE you without using you UP (sort of like the burning
bush). Servanthood is founded on this reality, which both produces and employs trust and
authentic Love.
So, as you reach down to those little hands that are reaching up to you, don't forget to also reach
up for the Hand that will always sustain you with the genuine joy found in servanthood and make
you a conduit of True Love.

She opens her mouth in wisdom and the
teaching of kindness is on her tongue.
She looks well to the ways of her household.
