Vulnerability of Service | Helps
All the gifts, talents and abilities that we have can be used negatively. When service and helps are used in a selfish, harsh, over-barring, reckless manner or when it is enabling sin or dysfunctional behavior, it would not be Spirit-led or an expression of love. This gift is best used when coupled with Leadership, Apostle, Government, Wisdom, Pastor and Prophecy
For example, someone with the Service gifting could be blessed with a heart to help the poor but without healthy boundaries may actually be hurtful to themselves or others.
Matthew 20:26 Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant,
Matthew 23:11 The greatest among you will be your servant.
Mark 10: 43-45 Whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
1 Corinthians 12:28 And God has placed in the church first of all apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healing, of helping, of guidance, and of different kinds of tongues
