Free to Serve

Category: Making Life Work for Your Family

Growing up, we all had our turn at jobs — like cutting grass with that old mower that didn't cut very well or cleaning the woodwork in the kitchen or worst of all, cleaning the tub, lavatory, and commode.

Those little, tough jobs kids hate doing change as we grow up. They grow into larger, tougher jobs we still don’t enjoy doing! But Christians know that even the simplest, most disagreeable job can be meaningful when we do it for the Lord. As we do things out of love for Him, serving becomes a blessing whether anyone else thanks us or not — even the little, tough jobs that nobody likes.

The apostle Paul reminds us that the Lord calls us to be free — free to serve and to bless.

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another humbly in love (Galatians 5:13 TNIV).

So let's serve one another in love.
