    1. Good service guarantees customer loyalty, management efficiency, and employee morale. Service is defined rather broadly in a series of happy platitudes as an expansive sense of public spiritedness, good neighborliness, community-mindedness, or big-hearted cooperativeness.

    2. Biblical service is a priestly function of mercy. The Hebrew word often used for service in the Old testiment is sharath. It means “to minister” or “to treat with affection.”

    3. We are called to do “righteousness and justice”. We are to be ministers of God’s peace, instruments of His love, and ambassadors of His kingdom.

    4. Israel refused to take up that responsibility, then God would revoke their privilege. If they refused to evercise reciprocal mercy, then God would rise up His anger to visit the land with His wrath and displeasure, expelling them into the howling wilderness once again. On the other hand, if they fulfilled their calling to live lives of merciful service, then they would ever be blessed.
    The principle still holds true. Those of us who have received the compassion of the lord on hiigh are to demonstrate tenderness in kind to all those around us. This is precisely the lesson Jesus was diving at in the parable of the unmerciful slave.

    5. Paul tells titus he should build his entire fledgling ministry around works of mercy: He was to be an example of good deeds. He was t teach the people to watch for chances to do good. They were all to “learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order that they might provide for daily necessities and not live unproductive lives.

    Numba 1! The worldly function of service is to boost profit margins, protect major shares, keep customers happy, and improve employee relations.

    Numba 2! The biblical function of service is mercy and ministry on the interpersonal side. It is far more carncerned about taking care of souls than about taking care of business.

    Numba 3! We are to imitate God in the sense of taking car of the needy. We should forgive, love, comfort, and teach others because He did all those things for us. We are to treat people as if they really do matter and to be selfless. Colossians 3:12 says we are to put on compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience.

    Numba 4! If Israel refused to do so, God would rise up on His anger to visit the land with his wrath and displeasure, expelling them into the wilderness again. That principle still holds true today.

    Numba 5!! Paul told Titus he was to be an example of good deeds, to teach the people to watch for chances to do good. As a pastor he had administrative duties, docrinal duties, discipling duties, preaching duties, counseling duties, arnitrating duties, and servanthood duties.
