II Kings 3:11 But Jehoshaphat said, Is there not here a prophet of the LORD, that we may inquire of the LORD by him? And one of the king of Israel’s servants answered and said, Here is Elisha the son of Shaphat, which poured water on the hands of Elijah.
Here we are years later. Elisha is still known as the man who poured water on the hands of Elijah. He is known as a servant. I do know that the desire to be used of God often makes us want to be somebody. We want to be recognized. I know that is a problem that I face.
But here I see the right attitude and example. Elisha was a great man of God and greatly used yet he is a servant. I want to serve. I don’t like it when I get treated like a servant but I do want to serve. Let’s be used of God by being servants.
