Day 34 of the Purpose Driven Life.

1. God is always more interested in why we do something than in what we do.

2. Attitudes count more than achievements.

3. Servants think more about others than about themselves.

4. When we stop focusing on our own need, we become aware of the needs around us.

5. You can't be a servant if you're full of yourself. It's only when we forget ourselves that we do the things that deserve to be remembered.

6. Real servants don't try to use God for their purpose. They let God use them for his purpose.

7. Self denial is the core of servanthood.

8. Servanthood and stewardship go together, since God expects us to be trustworthy in both.

9. All your time belongs to God. He insists on exclusive allegiance, not part-time faithfulness.

10. Wealth is certainly not a sin, but failing to use it for God's glory is.

11. Servant of God are always more concerned about ministry than money.

12. God uses money to test your faithfulness as a servant. That is why Jesus talked more about money than he did about either heaven or hell. He said, "If you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches.

13. Wealth Builders continue to amass wealth for themselves no matter how much they make, but Kingdom Builders change the rules of the game. They still try to make as much money as they can, but they do it in order to give it away. They use the wealth to fund God's church and its mission in the world.

14. Servants think about their work. not what others are

15. When Martha complained to Jesus that Mary was not helping with the work, she lost her servant's heart.

16. Real servants don't complain of unfairness.

17. It is not our job to evaluate the Master's other servants.

18. Your service for Christ is never wasted regardless of what others say.

19. If you're going to be a servant, you must settle your identity in Christ.

20. Servants don't need to cover their walls with plaques and awards to validate their work.

21. Servants think of ministry as an opportunity, not an obligation.
