Joel Osteen Daily Devotionals 5 September 2022: Serve with Excellence:
SCRIPTURE: -Luke 16:12, HCSB “And if you have not been faithful with what belongs to someone else, who will give you what is your own?”
You may have a dream of one day having your own business or ministry, but right now you’re working for someone else. You’re in a proving season. I’ve heard it said that you have to carry a crown before you can wear one. In other words, you have to do all you can to serve someone else with excellence, help build their dream and be successful. Today’s Scripture says that if you’re not faithful to give your best where you are, the door won’t open for you–“who will give you what is your own?” Every day when you go to work and give it your all, every time you sing in the choir, every time you help your friend with their project, you’re being faithful to another person’s dream. You’re showing God that He can trust you with your own.
God has a crown for you. He wants to take you higher, to give you opportunities and influence like you’ve never seen. The question is, are you helping somebody else succeed?
Prayer for Today
