Man. Leader. Serve your generation!

“After David has served his generation according to the will of God he went to rest with his fathers.”

Acts 13:36

A good friend of mine put this quote on his Facebook status the other day.  It apprehended me as I read it, probably because we have been talking so much lately about defining ourselves by who God has created us to ‘be’ instead of what we ‘do.’  I thought about my ‘being’ sentence, and how I finished it my stating that I am a man after God’s own heart.  David was too – of course, that’s where that line comes from!

As we’ve discussed, ‘doing’ should flow from our ‘being,’ and not vice versa. This quote struck me because it says exactly what ‘doing’ flowed from David’s ‘being’ a man after God’s own heart: He served his generation, according to the will of God.

That’s what I want to do too! When I die, I want it to be said of me: He served his generation, according to the will of God. We each have that chance gentlemen! To serve our generation!  And to do so according to the will of God.

Let’s do it!
eNgage!
