"To Serve Man" means to help people

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Mark 10:45)
"For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another." (Galatians 5:13)

Reflecting today on a conversation I had about sales and salesmanship. The best salesman matches his company's offerings to the genuine needs of the customer. If there is not a match, he will walk away from the sale. Having been a salesman, I did not always do this.

The two black and white images above are of the famous "To Serve Man (The Twilight Zone)". It's old (1962). And it's a classic. Click the link for the explanation. The classic closing line was "It's a cookbook!". The colored patch above (source) is the unofficial badge of the 509th Bomb Wing based in Whiteman Air Force Base in Missouri, shows a space alien with huge eyes holding a stealth bomber near its mouth. The text reads, "To Serve Man," and the caption below reads, "Gustatus Similis Pullus"—dog Latin for "Tastes Like Chicken".

Now my lesson for ministers of the Gospel. Look out for what is best for your flock! Don't treat them like chicken!
