“Now Naaman, captain of the host of the king of Syria, was a great man with his master, and honourable, because by him the LORD had given deliverance unto Syria: he was also a mighty man in valour, but he was a leper. 2And the Syrians had gone out by companies, and had brought away captive out of the land of Israel a little maid; and she waited on Naaman’s wife.” II Ki. 5:1-2
This little maid from Israel is a type of Christian, in that Christians have a call to serve. She was in the enemy’s home yet she served Naaman, the leper’s, wife. We are called to serve God and man. There are three levels of priority in this life of service.
1. Like the greatest commandment to love God first, we are servants to God first.
2. Next, we are servants to the household of faith. Just as Jesus washed His disciple’s feet, we are called to serve our brethren.
3. And last we are called to serve our fellow man. Yes, even if they are not Christians. We may not obey everything they say, but we are to serve our neighbor.
