The gift of the service to the Lord is bestowed upon the devotee by Lord. Those are lucky ones who are given this gift of devotional worship. That humble servant of the Lord is pleasing to his Lord God who day and night, performs devotional worship, day and night. Disregarding his own honor, he sings the Glorious Praises of the Lord. [SGGS 879] The Lord protects the honor of His humble servants; He is the Lover of His devotees - He makes them His own. The Lord's servants are very dear to the Lord; they chant the Word of the Lord's Bani.[SGGS 668]. The Lord's servants are very dear to the Lord; they chant the Word of the Lord's Bani. True Devotion is to remain dead while yet alive.[SGGS-365-1]Through devotional worship of the Lord, liberation and bliss are obtained.The Lord is the Lover of His devotees; He inspires them to perform devotional worship.[SGGS –159]

True seva according to Sikh scriptures must be without desire (nishkam), in humility (nimarta), with purity of intention (hirda suddh), with sincerity (chit lae) and in utter selflessness (vichon aap gavae). Such seva for the Sikh is the doorway to dignity as well as to mukti (liberation). "If one earns merit here through seva, one will get a seat of honour in His Court hereafter. (Guru Granth Sahib, p. 26)

And this is why is hard to be a gursikh.
