Learning to Serve

Tuesday, November 26, 2013

My church held a community outreach event by inviting folks to a Thanksgiving day meal potluck style that we church members volunteered to prepare and serve. It turned out nice- a lot of hungry folks were appreciative and we had plenty of food to go around.

This is where spiritual maturity comes in. I was tired-having worked six days and very little sleep. I was achy and a little grumpy. I had to get my act together and walk in love to be a servant for the people and to the people. I was humble by the many thank you our church received. My sweet Louie served with humility and gladness. We all worked together as a team meeting the needs of the central core of my new adopted city. I saw a bigger picture and realized that it is not about material things-how many of this and how many of that. It is about letting others know about God's grace and abundant mercy that is available to all.

I am learning to serve, adopting an attitude of gratitude. In Jesus' name! emoticon emoticon
