In watching society, it is clear there are two types of serving – one is a servant and the other is a slave. The definition of a servant is: “a devoted and helpful follower or supporter” The definition of a slave is : ” a person who is the legal property of another and is forced to obey them.”
It is such a blessing to see someone giving from their heart and serving… It is VERY difficult to see people who are ” bought” and feel obligated to do whatever they ask and work as though they are owned. Being “bought” can also be a mentality such a poverty mentality, being a sex symbol, lack of confidence etc.
Being a servant is a result of a Spiritual understanding of giving of ones self. It is very freeing and empowering. A slave comes from allowing someone to “buy” someone through paying off debts, allowing them to live with them, feeding them, or knowing something that the person doesn’t want to have shared so they live in fear and allow chains to be wrapped all around them.
God created you to be free. Don’t allow anyone to try to own you. Allow God to empower you to serve in Freedom not in Chains!
