July 16, 2016 SERVICE WORK
Every successful company has customers who keep them in business. The employees are taught how to treat customers well so they will continue to do business with them. Without customers, the company would eventually go broke. It's all about service. Just as businesses are to serve customers, we are to serve one another. When we fail to serve others, we will feel broken. We will feel like something is missing. Serving others is why we are here on this earth. We are to serve others at work, at home and everywhere in between. We should work hard serving others.
Acts 20:35 "And I have been a constant example of how you can help those in need by working hard. You should remember the words of the Lord Jesus: 'It is more blessed to give than to receive.'" (NLT)
Dear Lord, remind us that life is not about us. Remind us life is about how we can serve You and serve others. Help us in our jobs to remember to look for ways to help our coworkers. Help us at home to look for ways we can serve our family. Help us in our communities to look for ways we can serve our neighbor. Above all, we want to serve and obey You. Thank You, Lord, for opportunities to serve. In Jesus' name. Amen.
We are here on this earth to serve. If we aren't serving, we aren't living.
Life is not about us. It is about the difference we can make in the lives of others.
We need to stop thinking about us and look for ways to serve others.
At work, home and everywhere in between, we are to serve others.
We are to serve others just as Jesus did.
Mark 10:45 "For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many." (NLT)
Focus: Serving others is what we were created to do. When we use our skills, time and money to help others, we are pleasing God.
