Availability & Wisdom
AVAILABILITY is defined as "making my own schedule and priorities secondary to the wishes of those I serve". "The measure of a man is not in the number of his servants but in the number of people whom he serves." (Paul Moody). The interesting thing about success is this - the one who is ready to lead is the one who was first ready to serve. Here's the principle: As you serve, you are developing the right state of character so that when the riches and blessings come, you will not be proud and conceited. Makes sense?
WISDOM is defined as "seeing and responding to life situations from a perspective that transcends my current circumstances." How does one get the big picture of life and learn to respond to challenges (instead of reacting)? It lies in your ability to receive advice and instruction. A middle-eastern proverb says - "Rebuke a wise man and he will be wiser still." How true!
