Serving It Up

Description

True success is having a humble character enough to think of someone else’s needs first.

…whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant (Mark 10:43).

THINK

Today’s idea of success seems to come from the images and stories seen in our technologically advanced world. If we have the means to go to an envious destination or have a certain possession, then the assumption is that we have “arrived” and we want everyone to know it. But what if success meant something more?

True success isn't about advertising what you have, where you go, or who you know, so you can show everyone else what they don’t have. True success is having a humble character enough to think of someone else’s needs first.  It’s basically following the example of Jesus. He didn't post pictures about washing the disciples’ feet;  He just did what needed to be done—He served another. When we follow Christ’s example, we can build relationships with those we may have put distance between before.  

"True humility is not thinking less of yourself; it is thinking of yourself less.” – C.S. Lewis 

PRAY

Ask God to open your eyes to those around you who have needs and to give you the heart to be humble enough to reach out and help. 

ACT

If you are not already, get connected to your local church and start serving.  Use technology to let someone know you are ready to help.
