Why is it that we get so consumed in our self-righteous desires?! Why is it so difficult look at how we can serve others before we serve ourselves? Don’t you find joy at birthday’s, Christmas, or any other time we give presents to someone else? Is it not pure joy to see someone else find happiness in what you’ve done for them? You’ve given them something they can use. Something that will make their lives better. Why would we not want that internal feeling of satisfaction and joy all the time?!
Do we sometimes have the desire to have things done for us? Of course! When we are blessed, it feels good. The goal, rather, is to spend most of your time blessing others by serving them. Bringing joy and happiness into the lives of others is my goal. I am a Christian. Therefore, I will serve others, as Christ served. Jesus came, not to be served, but rather to serve. He eventually gave His life for us! The ultimate act of service. By His blood, I am healed.
Just my thoughts on this Saturday morning. God bless you!
