An Excellent Challenge to Get Outside Ourselves! May 11, 2004
Once again, Swindoll has written an excellent book addressing a problem in the Christian community: this one focuses on the challenge of refusing to live like the world and serving others in Jesus' name.
Among the important points covered in the book include:
1. Two tests of true humility. 2. A great proof of true servanthood is giving anonymously. 3. Servants who refuse to be bogged down in the past are seldom petty people. 4. Humility, a character trait greatly cherished by God, is sadly lacking in today's world. 5. The dangers of being a servant. 6. Jesus described Himself as a servant and 3 aspects of obedient service. 7. God's servants will be attacked and abused - nothing we experience has not first gone through God. 8. An eternal perspective of the servant's rewards.
Unfortunately, the church all too often copies the world - lording it over others instead of serving others, expecting to be served instead of serving, and not wishing to serve unless we receive recognition.
Swindoll's book is an excellent challenge to serve in Jesus' name. Read and be encouraged and challenged!

Let me begin by saying that this book has truly shown me the inside of my heart. Before reading Improving Your Serve,by Charles Swindoll, my "serve" was more for me than it was for God or for anyone else. I had considered myself to be loving and caring of others, but after reading this book I realized how much more I could be doing. I love the many stories that are put together to teach lessons on humility, forgiveness, giving, influences...etc. I have truly learned where my heart needed to improve and I am really working toward serving others and loving others no matter what. I am beginning to get the heart that Christ would want me to have, and not so much the heart that the world expects of me. If anyone longs to get out of the selfish world that we live in, and would enjoy the pleasure of giving back to their community and the people they love, I suggest reading this book. Chuck has truly shown me to see the good in all people and to love and forgive others as Christ has forgiven me.
servant leadership Jan 4, 2001
Incredible that the same principles taught by Jesus Christ became the passion of Robert Greenleaf, Chuck Swindoll, Peter Drucker, Ken Blanchard and numerous others.
Chuck Swindoll is a great story teller. Probably would have been a great television personality like Cronkite, but chose to follow the real call on his life.
If you want to be challenged to face your pride/ego, pick up this book and read it cover-to-cover. Ouch!
I'm not talking about playing tennis Apr 24, 2000
I read this book a few years ago, and it radically changed my life. The first book that I ready written by Chuck was The Grace Awakening, and my eyes truly were opened and my mind enlightened, as to how very easy it is to be legalistic and judgmental. In reading Improving Your Serve, I felt smaller and smaller, and realized how Big God really is and what it really means to "be like Jesus." Thanks Chuck, your books The Grace Awakening, and Improving Your Serve, have done for me what being at church Sunday after Sunday was not able to accomplish. In reading these two books in particular, I realized that being a writer is a powerful tool to use as a witness to the truth of Jesus Christ. Continue to operate in this ministry wisely. May God's blessings continue to be on your ministry.
