"The Greatness of Service"

“But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.” --Matthew 23:11

Truett Cathy

 


 

Truett Cathy passed away September 8, 2014, at the age of 93. He lived a remarkable life. He started his professional life at a small café near Atlanta, Georgia, where he developed a chicken sandwich that became the foundation to his successful restaurant chain, Chick-fil-A.  Cathy wrote five books.  He won numerous awards and honors.

What was extraordinary in his life was his commitment to humble service.  He helped young people in many ways, including summer camps, providing support to foster homes for children and scholarships for their education.

What is perhaps the most remarkable of all is that for more than 50 years, Cathy taught the junior high boys’ Sunday school class in his Baptist church.  This major entrepreneur and CEO saw the value in investing his life with one of the most challenging age groups in the church.

Our faithful service to the Lord may not make us wealthy, but it will surely make us successful. God will bless the lives of those who are committed to faithfully serving Him. Find your place of ministry and give yourself away to it, and you will find that God will not be your debtor.

“This book of the law shall not depart out of thy mouth; but thou shalt meditate therein day and night, that thou mayest observe to do according to all that is written therein:  for then thou shalt make thy way prosperous, and then thou shalt have good success.” --Joshua 1:8

“Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again.” --Luke 6:38
