Spiritual Gifts: Servanthood

Servanthood is the gift of doing for others, sometimes to the exclusion of meeting personal needs. Servants look for ways to do for others both within and beyond the congregation and community. Servants do not choose to serve, but serve from a sense of identity and call. Gifted servants never feel put-upon or taken advantage of, but see each opportunity to do for others as a way to be true to self.

Reflection questions:

● How do you live the servant’s gift at home, at work, in relationships with friends?

● What other gifts best complement servanthood, and enable you to increase the value and impact of your service?

● In what ways can you improve your use and knowledge of your gift?

● Where do other people see evidence of this gift in your life?
