Laban said . . . “I have learned by experience that the Lord has blessed me for your sake. (Genesis 30:27)
If the Lord is blessing you, it may not be because of your own goodness, righteousness, or talent. It may be because of the goodness, righteousness and giftedness of another. God may be blessing you to serve another. You may be gifted to be a gift. You may be the helpmate of a servant of the Lord. You may be the encourager behind God’s warrior. You may be Moses’ Aaron; Joshua’s Caleb; David’s Jonathan or Paul’s Timothy. Never feel of little value when serving the server. Jesus said, “If you want to be great in God’s kingdom, you must be a servant of all.” Therefore never shun being an encourager, a helpmate, a coach, or an assistant. If God calls you to be second, be second and be satisfied. Relish being an advisor. Cherish upholding a leader. Revel in making another shine. God knows and He will often reward the second more than the first.
