Joseph: God’s greatest trusted servant leader

(Discovering & Developing The Servant Leader In You)

Opportunity

There is an opportunity in every obligation. When we begin to assume responsibility, we start to mature. Many a man has started his upward climb when he came to the realization that many things depended upon him. No one is indispensable but when one is cooperative, efficient, courageous, patient, self-reliant and dependable, he becomes almost irreplaceable. —Carl Holmes, Friendly Chat

Joseph was not indispensable, but God made him irreplaceable. Others should be able to depend upon us as Christians. One of the spiritual obligations of every believer is to be depended upon by others, in spite of the situation. Situations and circumstances should never dictate our performance as believers. We should know what to do and do it. That is what God expects from His followers. We should be in it for the REWARD and not the vengeance.
