Here at ServantsJournal.com we strive to possess a servant’s heart for service and for the things of God. We also want to encourage fellow believers in their walk too.

And seven stands for perfection or more properly completion. Well, a while back there was this phrase that stood out in my mind, BE YE THEREFORE…
In searching for every instance of that phrase in the bible, I found that it only appears exactly seven times! How appropriate! When thinking of an encouraging thought, that which I would say to you appears seven times which is the number of completion.

In each case, the phrase is used to encourage God’s people to be or do that which is for their good and for God’s glory. There are, in total, seven short posts in this series.
