Serving or Being Served?

Are you serving or being served?.. 

It’s easy to sit and be served. 

We experience this at restaurants, hair salons, doctor visits and other things where we are the customer. 

We gain from receiving these services. 

It’s not so easy to serve others. 

Even when we are passionate about what we do, there are those few people or certain situations that try our patience and make our skin crawl. 

Nevertheless, we gain from performing these types of services. 

What about serving others for no gain? 

This is where we are asked to help another person who we may or may not even see but will benefit from our labor and service. 

It’s a thankless task with no direct reward for us… or so it seems! 

Serving others helps yourself, when your motive is selfless and your efforts are to be of service with no personal gain….

Check your experience… 

“Our real purpose is to fit ourselves to be of maximum service to God and the people about us.” Big Book pg 77 

Lord, let us serve others with the motive of helping and not gaining, AMEN. 

“The generous will prosper; those who refresh others will themselves be refreshed.” Proverbs 11:25 

Have a blessed day Y’all!
