It is very rewarding to serve others. Jesus was a great example of leading and serving. He taught his disciples and loved them through action. Even before he left his disciples, he was intentional about serving them.
“After washing their feet, he put on his robe again and sat down and asked, “Do you understand what I was doing? You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and you are right, because that’s what I am. And since I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you ought to wash each other’s feet. I have given you an example to follow. Do as I have done to you. I tell you the truth, slaves are not greater than their master. Nor is the messenger more important than the one who sends the message. Now that you know these things, God will bless you for doing them.”John 13:12-17 NLT
I pray that God opens our eyes to those that we can invest in today and everyday. I pray that our influence in the lives of others point to God and to Jesus as their role model for life and leadership. I pray that God removes the things in us that would keep others from being drawn to God through our example. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
How can you serve others today?
