The Bible says that Jesus came not to be served, but to serve. A sign of healthy spiritual growth is the desire to serve the Lord by serving others. True joy is found in serving others and being a blessing.
Since God has personally gifted each of us with a unique combination of passions, skills, and talents, we should prayerfully and purposefully watch throughout the day for opportunities to serve others and demonstrate the love of Christ.
So whether it’s volunteering to serve in your church or local community, I want to encourage you to use your unique God-given talents, live generously with everything you have, and put a smile on someone’s face today!
”Each of you has been blessed with one of God’s many wonderful gifts to be used in the service of others. So use your gift well.”– 1 Peter 4:10 (CEV)
