It’s a serious choice to consider when my service is required helping others around me. For some it is easy and yet for others it is a struggle. I have seen God work in my life many times, and just when I needed it most. So as I witness and experience this time of struggle happening all around me, with all ages of people suffering, I feel God’s Spirit directing my spirit to serve, without judgement, where it is needed or required of me. In my case it is with my family here at home. It is as a teacher to my daughter, a helper to my sweet bride and our aging mother’s care.
“…To a graceless neck the yoke of Christ is intolerable, but to the saved sinner it is easy and light. We may judge ourselves by this: do we love that yoke, or do we wish to cast it off? Psalms 2:3”
For me this day, I pray, Lord help me to serve those in need around me. I pray your Spirit guide my steps, with a willing heart, for service and your Loving care. Teach me to be selfless and remind me of the many blessings I already receive from you daily. In Jesus’ name, Amen!
