is it okay for a service to consume a model

I know that a service can update a model directly , which is possible by injecting the model into the service.
but i have a basic question :

Can a service consume a model, as in the get the configuration details?
or is it like the command which is calling the service should be injected with the configuration model and the config values thus fetched should be passed into the service method call form the command.

thanks :)

    The most flexible setup is if a command configures the service, either by passing the necessary data to the method it's calling, or by configuring the service upfront (this is my preferred method).
    Injecting a config model isn't such a good idea, since it limits the reusability of your service.

    It also limits the services' testability I too prefer configuring service with a command upfront.
