How can I serve someone today?



Lord Jesus,

How can I serve someone today?

How can I be YOU to someone else?

Maybe a stranger needs a smile and friendly hello.

Maybe a neighbor needs flowers from my yard.

Maybe my community needs my participation.

Maybe my child needs encouragement instead of correction.

Maybe my spouse needs affirmation and appreciation instead of my complaints.

Maybe that person who hurt me needs to hear that I've forgiven the offense.

Lord, you have put people all around me that need to see you in me.

How is that so easy to miss?

You have put me here to serve others,

not make a better life for myself.

Lord, forgive me for my selfishness, resentment, and criticism.

I want to serve someone today because that's what you do.

I want to be Jesus today.

No one needs to thank me,

notice me,

or appreciate me.

Only let them think about your great love.

Thanks for calling me to serve.

In Jesus' name,

Amen.


"Whoever wants to become great among you must be your serant, and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life a ransom for many." (Mark 10:43-44)
