Pastor Bob Radford’s Sermon
“If you think you are too important to help...you are only fooling
yourself.”  Gal 6:3 NLT
In his book Swim With the Sharks, leadership expert Harvey Mackay writes
about Philip Pillsbury of the famous Pillsbury milling family: “The tips of three of
his fingers were missing...the unmistakable mark of a journeyman grain miller,
albeit a somewhat less-than-dexterous one. Philip Pillsbury had an
international reputation as a connoisseur of fine foods...but to the troops his
reputation as a man willing to do a hard, dirty job was the one that
mattered...And you can be sure everyone was aware of it.” Following in the
footsteps of Jesus calls for being service-oriented, not self-absorbed. Often the
reason we don’t volunteer is because we think we can’t do it as well as
somebody else. We’ve made the mistake of making excellence an idol by
buying into the philosophy, “If I can’t do it right, I won’t do it at all.” The fact is,
less-than-perfect service is better than the best of intentions. If you’re not
willing to do it imperfectly in the beginning, you’ll never get out of the starting
gate. Almost everything we do is done poorly at first. That’s how we learn.
God’s plan has always been to involve as many folks as possible, not have
everything run by a few experts. The best of people make mistakes; it’s how
you gain knowledge and develop character. The Bible says, “If you think you
are too important to help...you are only fooling yourself.” Sometimes you’re
called to serve upward to those in authority; other times you’re called to serve
downward to those in need. Either way, you’re serving God only when you’re
willing to do what’s required.

Is 41:10-12 Fear thou not; for I am with thee: be not dismayed; for I am thy God: I will strengthen thee; yea, I will help thee; yea, I will uphold thee with the right hand of my righteousness. Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish. Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.


Hebrews 13:8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever.


Proverbs 10:22 The blessing of the LORD, it maketh rich, and he addeth no sorrow with it.


Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
