“A sus órdenes”
That’s Spanish for, “At your orders”, or “at your service”.
It’s a common greeting when you go to a store or place of service.
So how can I serve you?
How can I help you or add value to your life?
The reason I want to help you is because I’ve been given a helping hand.
I’ve been blessed so I want to bless you.
I’ve been a missionary since 1987. I was what some might consider a “poor missionary”.
It wasn’t necessarily because I was $85,000 in debt and didn’t have a lot of money. It was because of my own mentality.
Around that time I read a quote from one of my favorite leaders, Zig Ziglar. He said,
If you help other people get what they want, those people will
help you get what you want.
I also read a simple verse in the Bible,
Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.
Luke 6:38 NKJV
These simple, yet powerful, statements are life changing (or at least they changed my life)
That’s because, as a missionary, I was a leader who was constantly looking for people to help me with personal financial support. I looked for people to donate to me, to give me something.
Acting on Luke 6:38 and applying Zig’s advice helped me understand that, as a servant leader, I had it turned upside down. I needed to turn it completely around so that my goal was to help people.
I needed to give first, then I would receive. God always tells us to start the process by adding value. Adding value comes through serving, loving, and giving. Then God’s laws take care of making sure reciprocation follows.
It’s time to put God’s law of sowing and reaping into action. Og Mandino summarized God’s law in this statement,
Always do you best. What you plant now you will harvest later.
Here’s How I Serve
Through the years I’ve discovered some of the gifts and callings God has for me. I use these strengths to serve others.
- By Loving God and establishing Him as my first priority
- Through servant leadership
- As a husband and a father
- As a speaker and author
- Ministry as a missionary
I sum all this up in this one simple statement, “Fulfilling God’s purpose for my life”
So how can I serve you?
Can I minister to you or provide you with a service?
Contact me and let’s begin a give and take relationship. I’ll give you something of value and you can take it home with you.
Or… in the case of products or services I offer; If I sell it to you, you’ll quickly discover that it is very valuable and is well worth your time and money.
