Life Is All About Service

Teacher: The Damascus Scribe.
Subject: “Life Is All About Service.”

Message received by George Barnard.

The Scribe: “Once upon a time, and really not all that long ago, if one belonged to ‘the common people’ one was destined to go into service to the rather well-heeled of the population. In many places on our globe — and I have every right and reason to call her our globe, since I gave much of Myself to Urantia in service — such is still the case. Certainly, I promise you, that the advent of education for the entire population did much for those of ‘the average citizens’ to rise to more eminent trades and distinguished professions within the population.

“Do not make the mistake of thinking these new, more or less ‘self-made’ entrepreneurs are not in service. They are in service! Just like the kitchen maid and washer woman of your distant past, my friend. And so, in the end analysis, is every living and thinking creature that God made in these universes. This world — I say our world, and now I see you are getting used to my way of thinking — is all about service, from the most distinguished celestial to the least educated of our wild men in the endless forests.

“Everyone is to serve his fellow man and woman, no exception. As well, every single person is to be served. And when you hear a child cry and cry and sob, some parent or caregiver likely is not doing the job they are meant to do. And when you see a homeless person on the streets on a cold night with nowhere to go but to brave the onslaught of that chilly weather, some politician likely has their priorities mixed up and with him or her so have a great number of others that can provide the funds for a warm bed.

“Worlds like ours — (hears a chuckle) — that have everything in great measure and abundant volume are an absolute rarity. Countless would consider themselves extremely lucky to live in such a plentiful home world and care for its soils, flora and fauna but before all and above all those men and women in need. Still, when you do not have the means, you can at least make a warm gesture or show a friendly smile. It surely would give Me the feeling that you are about God’s business.

“Our earth is simply the schoolyard for life hereafter where all become engrossed in providing service to others — and where you learn to be able to teach and provide service as you constantly work to bring yourself closer to the greatest Provider of Service in our universes.
