This month my rambunctious 3rd graders are learning about “serving” in Sunday school. I’m not always sure how much their little hearts are gleaning… but for me, I’m being challenged!
Why do I serve? Who is it I’m serving? Does it matter when and where I do it? What if it’s not a very big job? Or a famous person? Or a known ministry? Or something anyone else ever sees?
(1 Corinthians 10:31) So …whatever you do, do everything for the glory of God.
How humbling to think that – daily – it’s God alone I’m really serving! No matter when or where or how or who’s involved- If I do it for His glory, it’s as if I am doing it directly for Him.
(Colossians 3:23, 24) Whatever you are doing, work at it with enthusiasm, as to the Lord and not for people, because you know that you will receive your inheritance from the Lord as the reward. Serve the Lord Christ.
Writing a blog, cooking dinner, grocery shopping, babysitting, Biblestudy, cleaning the bathroom 😜 praying for my neighbor and family… all these services done unto the LORD are ultimately for His Glory 🙌🏽 When it’s for His glory, He is pleased.
(Romans 12:11-13) Do not lag in zeal, be enthusiastic in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, endure in suffering, persist in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints, pursue hospitality.
