Gotta Serve Somebody

On my mind today is a song by Bob Dylan called "Gotta Serve Somebody." He wrote this song when he was going through his "born again Christian phase" as Rolling Stone would put it. I love the lyrics because they speak the truth. Here is one verse with the chorus:

You may be a construction worker 
working on a home
You may be living in a mansion 
or you might live in a dome
You might own guns 
and you might even own tanks
You might be somebody's landlord 
you might even own banks.
But you're gonna have to serve somebody, yes  
You're gonna have to serve somebody. 
Well, it may be the devil or it may be the Lord 
But you're gonna have to serve somebody.
We call ourselves servants of Christ. In the past at times we have been. Sometime we are in the present moment. We hope we will be in the future. Who will you serve in the next five seconds? How? That question will keep you focused and alert which was one of Jesus primary messages whenever he preached.
