Motivational Monday – Your Gifts, Loving and Serving Others

on May 12, 2014

These days we see so many people getting wrapped up in me, Me, ME!!!  I know I have been there.  Have you?  Our priorities as so easily swayed between all the technology and media we get in our lives in this “modern” age.

One thing I am trying (note: trying) to focus on is serving.  In both my family, my church and my community.  Now that doesn’t mean I have to sign up for every opportunity, show up at every school or church event, or over schedule myself to feel fulfilled.  God doesn’t want us to be constantly overburdened and we certainly don’t need to do good works to earn His love.  For God’s love cannot be earned because it is given to us freely.

Romans 5:5

We’re not ashamed to have this confidence, because God’s love has been poured into our hearts by the Holy Spirit, who has been given to us.
What is does mean is that I need to put God in the forefront of my life.  I need to make Him my priority, by working on my love relationship with him.  In turn I can show his love by serving others with the love of Christ thru my actions (serving), words (caring) and thoughts (praying).    By combining all those things I am loving God first.
Serving

    This is just what I needed to hear this morning. I’ve been struggling with dividing my time and knowing what to give and when.
