“Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight"
- Isaiah 42:1
There are a lot of ways to serve. We are actually doing it - in our home, at work, and in our communities. And it actually feels good to be able to give part of ourselves to others. There is one service though that we may tend to ignore, and that is to serve God. Yes, it is not an obligation. It is a choice. But why do I choose to serve Him? Because I have a lot of things to be thankful for! In spite the fact that life is not perfect, I am thankful that God has blessed me in so many ways and this is my way of giving back to the community.
I live a simple life. I don't have luxurious things but I have more than what I need and for that, I am grateful. I've been through a lot of problems, setbacks, frustrations, struggles, challenges and trials; name it, I've experienced it. Just like you! But that doesn't stop me from recognizing God's graces and blessings. I still smile, laugh and enjoy what He has given me!
With God's grace, I offer my strength, talents and time because HE deserves it. After all His sacrifices and unwavering love, is time to repay Him through my good deeds, by living His Word, and serving His community. All for the glory and love of God!
