In a culture where "BEING SERVED" has become such a thing, with GrubHub, DoorDash, Uber, Lyfte, and apps that allow you to place your order, have it prepped and waiting for you when you arrive, just like you want it, to grab and go it's obvious that we crave "Being Served." Let's be honest, it's nice being catered to, having somebody that's attentive and responsive to your every desire and whim. But does this really serve our humanity well? Does being served, really make us happy?
When we look at Daniel, and his friends who were ripped from their homeland and carried away with the rest of the royalty and nobles of, Judah, in 587 BC during the reign of Bayblon's greatest king, Nebuchadnezzer, we see someone who grew up in captivity and was forced into a life of service to a foreign king, in a foreign land, with foreign gods. How can serving, especially when your coerced, be good or even bring any thing good?
Maybe there is more to "Being a Servant" than we know, maybe there is a gift to be had, a truth to be grabbed and lived! Maybe this truth enables us to access what the happiness is really about and perhaps where, or maybe from whom happiness really comes.
