In Service to Others

Star of LifeIn Service to Others-Chief's Personal Message........

MANY PEOPLE HAVE ASKED ME WHERE THE MOTTO " IN SERVICE TO OTHERS " FOR OUR SERVICE ORIGINATED. I WOULD LIKE TO TAKE A BRIEF MOMENT TO EXPLAIN. I WILL MAKE REFERENCE TO SOME SCRIPTURES CONTAINED IN THE BIBLE SIMPLY BECAUSE THESE PASSAGES MOST CLEARLY COMMUNICATE WHAT THIS MOTTO MEANS TO ME AND WHAT I HOPE IT WILL MEAN TO EACH INDIVIDUAL WHO WEARS OUR UNIFORM.

OUR LIVES HERE ON EARTH ARE FLEETING. IT IS HOW WE CHOOSE TO UTILIZE THAT TIME THAT DEFINES WHETHER OUR EXISTENCE WILL EVEN BE WORTHY OF NOTE.

CHRIST USED A PARABLE TO TEACH THE IMPORTANCE OF SERVICE IN THE PARABLE, HE TOLD OF HIS RETURN TO EARTH IN HIS GLORY AND OF SEPARATING THE RIGHTEOUS FROM THE WICKED. TO THE RIGHTEOUS IN THIS PARABLE HE SAYS " COME YE BLESSED OF MY FATHER, INHERIT THE KINGDOM PREPARED FOR YOU FROM THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD: FOR I WAS AN HUNGERED AND YE GAVE ME MEAT: I WAS THIRSTY AND YE GAVE ME DRINK: I WAS A STRANGER, AND YE TOOK ME IN: NAKED AND YE CLOTHED ME: I WAS SICK, AND YE VISITED ME: I WAS IN PRISON, AND YE CAME UNTO ME " (MATTHEW 25: 34-36 ).

THE RIGHTEOUS, WHO ARE PUZZLED BY THIS DECLARATION ASK: " LORD WHEN SAW ME THEE AN HUNGERED, AND FED THEE? OR THIRSTY, AND GAVE THEE DRINK? WHEN SAW WE THEE A STRANGER, AND TOOK THEE IN? OR NAKED AND CLOTHED THEE? OR WHEN SAW ME THEE SICK, OR IN PRISON, AND CAME UNTO THEE? (MATTHEW 25: 37-39).

THEN THE LORD ANSWERS, " IN AS MUCH AS YE DONE IT UNTO ONE OF THE LEAST OF THESE MY BRETHREN, YE HAVE DONE IT UNTO ME" ( MATTHEW 25:40).

WHETHER YOU BELIEVE IN THE BIBLE AS A HOLY BOOK OR SIMPLY A SECULAR BOOK OF ANCIENT WISDOM, THE POWER OF THAT PARTICULAR PASSAGE OF TEXT CANNOT BR IGNORED. IT HAS BEEN MY EXPERIENCE THAT WHEN PEOPLE LOSE THEMSELVES IN SERVING THE NEEDS OF OTHERS THEY OFTEN END UP FINDING THEMSELVES IN THE PROCESS.
