Lower


Has the LORD appointed you
To fill a lower role?
If you say, "It just won't do!"
You risk your very soul.

Do not grumble at his will.
Obey his holy voice.
God has made us, and may fill
Each role with his own choice.

As you take that lower place,
Rejoice! Be glad for those
Who, like you, will see his face.
God welcomes those he knows.

And Moses said to Korah, “Hear now, you sons of Levi: is it too small a thing for you that the God of Israel has separated you from the congregation of Israel, to bring you near to himself, to do service in the tabernacle of the LORD and to stand before the congregation to minister to them, and that he has brought you near him, and all your brothers the sons of Levi with you? And would you seek the priesthood also?

(Numbers 16:8-10 ESV)

Too many of us are like Korah, looking for something greater rather than being willing to do what God assigned us to do.
