In a moment of frustration my brother said we were born and raised to be slaves.  A bit dramatic but I new what he meant.  Our parents always encouraged and volunteered us for the tough physical jobs.

Also it is a bit ironic given how successful he is and considering I really do not have financial concerns.  We were always told that hard work builds character and is its own reward.

Now years later I was introduced to a book Celebration of Discipline by Richard J. Foster.  In Chapter 9 of this book the author writes how service, as described by St. Paul as slavery, builds true Christian humility.

Thanks Mom and Dad.
