On Serving

In the 2009 Annual Report, Commissioner Israel L. Gaither talks about The Salvation Army as an organization – and about himself as a servant.  His well-done video is brief and to the point.

In barely a minute and a half, he talks about the progress of The Salvation Army and exudes the personal joy of serving.  His closing remarks:

Every morning I get up.

Every single morning.

I thank God that I’m alive and I thank God for the privilege of putting on this uniform.  The joy of serving others by serving God is my greatest joy.

His passion is quiet but apparent.  Does yours come across when talking to others?

It is contagious.  It can affect others.

May you catch it – and spread it.
