Profit is the increase above costs. Costs include our “reasonable service” expected of a servant. A profitable servant, on the other hand, goes beyond duty.
“Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.” (Matthew 16:24-25)
God’s Word changes lives.
