Father, here is a man who has served much. He has given much of his time to the service of others and at the end of his service days, he will look for his rewards. Are not You, heavenly Father, the greatest servant of all? You served mankind in sacrificing Your only Son for our sake – for Lyle’s eternal sake. Father, allow Lyle to recognize that service is sacrifice and You sacrificed all for him long before he even knew. Father help him, as he looks for his earthly rewards that ultimately his surrender and service to You will reap the greatest rewards of all. Let not this day, or days forward pass by that he would not begin to see Your greatness as You reveal to him Your service and sacrifice for him. Amen..………..
