Exodus 24:13 (NKJV) “So Moses arose with his assistant Joshua, and Moses went up to the mountain of God.”

The great Leonard Bernstein was once asked which instrument in the orchestra was the most difficult to play. He thought for a moment and answered “Second fiddle. I can get plenty of first violinists, but to find someone who can play the second fiddle with enthusiasm? That’s a problem! And if we have no second fiddle, we have no harmony.”

In the church, we need more second fiddle believers whose aim in life is to serve completely, unconcerned about positions or titles. These believers are ready to keep the harmony as they serve Jesus. When you seek to serve—be like Timothy—be a blessing to your pastor and those that serve around you.

Hebrews 12:1–2 (NKJV) “Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking unto Jesus, the author and finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.”
