Eliezer of Damascus

Eliezer of Damascus

I’m sure you are wondering who Eliezer is. ⁣

It’s okay. ⁣

You’ll know at the end of this post.⁣

In fact, you’ll know why I’m talking about him today.⁣⁣⁣

But let’s establish some context first to help with with understanding.⁣⁣
.⁣
The source of this is the Bible… the most exciting book to read. ⁣

It was recorded that Abram had just been called out of his father’s house and as he was leaving, Lot, his nephew, went with him.⁣
⁣⁣
The blessings that were on Abraham had a way of increasing Lot massively just by association…⁣
⁣⁣
But that is not my focus for this post.⁣
⁣⁣
It got to a time when the possessions of Abram and Lot were so much that they had to separate from each other.⁣
⁣⁣
The land couldn’t contain them again.⁣
⁣⁣
In all these blessings, there was one thing Abram desired so much but didn’t yet have.⁣
⁣⁣
A child.⁣
⁣.⁣⁣
One day, he had an opportunity to talk to God about this and he made a statement that I had to think about for a while.⁣

I’ll quote it directly:⁣
⁣⁣
“But Abram replied, “O Sovereign Lord , what good are all your blessings when I don’t even have a son? Since you’ve given me no children, Eliezer of Damascus, a servant in my household, will inherit all my wealth. You have given me no descendants of my own, so one of my servants will be my heir.”⁣
Genesis 15:2‭-‬3 NLT⁣
⁣⁣
Eliezer of Damascus. ⁣
⁣⁣
Just look at that. ⁣
⁣⁣
What manner of service would Eliezer have given Abraham that he was already chosen to inherit such great wealth?⁣
⁣⁣
What kind of excellence would make Abram mention a servant’s name in his prayers? ⁣
⁣⁣
I mean, Abram wasn’t saying he’ll share his wealth among his servants. He said Eliezer will inherit ALL. Everything.⁣
⁣.⁣
⁣Unfortunately I couldn’t see the story of Eliezer before that day recorded but I learnt something that I’ll share with you.⁣
⁣⁣
There is a way you will serve that can give you an inheritance.⁣
⁣⁣
It could be a person.⁣
⁣⁣
It could be your clients, your audience, your customers.⁣
⁣⁣
There is a way you’ll serve your clients that they’ll want to give you all the contracts that concern you.⁣
⁣⁣
What you are serving is great.⁣
⁣⁣
How you serve is even better. ⁣
⁣⁣
How are you serving?⁣
⁣⁣
Eliezer of Damascus. ⁣

⁣To your continued Digital Productivity,⁣
