Master and servant
A servant says to his master, “You are my master. I love you. I respect you so much. I will stay in your house and not leave you. I like you, your house and your company.”
The master says to his servant, “Okay, you stay with me and obey my orders. I will give you plenty of food, clothing, shelter and other facilities. Just listen to what I say and obey me. Do not leave me for anyone or anything else. I will provide you with whatever you need.”
The master then asks the servant to bring a glass of water. The servant keeps sitting there and keeps saying to his master, “I love you master…you are so nice…” But he doesn’t do what his master asks him to do.
Again the master asks the servant to bring something from the market. The servant keeps sitting there and doesn’t obey and keeps saying, “O master, you are so kind…I love you!”
Do you think this is love? Do you think this is respect? Can this servant win the love of his master?
What are we doing to our Master? Our Creator?
We keep saying we believe in Him, love Him….but do we really obey Him?
