Are your relationships rooted in conditions?
"I will do this, but will you do that?"
Kingdom servants don't attend to their work with a list of conditions. Their reward is in the service.
Look at the conjunction "but" in the Scripture below:
"Yet another said, 'Lord, I will follow You, but let me first go bid farewell to those at my house'" (Luke 9:61).
We use a conjunction in speech to connect one phrase to another. "I will serve" is connected to "let me first go."
We must all be cautious of spoken or unspoken conditions. The Lord knows our heart.
"Jesus said to him, 'No one who puts his hand to the plow and looks back at things is fit for the kingdom of God'" (Luke 9:62).
Serve with no buts.
