You’re Gonna Have to Serve Somebody

No matter what!
“But Ruth said, “Don’t beg me to leave you or to stop following you. Where you go, I will go. Where you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. And where you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. I ask the LORD to punish me terribly if I do not keep this promise: Not even death will separate us.” When Naomi saw that Ruth had firmly made up her mind to go with her, she stopped arguing with her.” – Ruth 1:16-18
“The officer who carried Jonathan’s armor said to him, “Do whatever you think is best. Go ahead. I’m with you.” – 1 Samuel 14:7
“Many people claim to be loyal,

but it is hard to find a trustworthy person” – Proverb 20:6
Very blessed to have had the opportunity to serve alongside some great leaders who valued loyalty, no matter what.
Served a few who had no idea what to do with it.
In the end, we all ‘serve’ someone. How well will you do so?
