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 worse, cleaning the commode and the tub and the lavatory.

Those little, tough jobs kids hate doing just change as we grow up. Eventually they turn into larger, tougher jobs we still don’t enjoy doing! But those who follow Jesus 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 — yes, even those little, tough jobs that nobody likes can become a blessing!

Free from law and free from sin and free to serve!
Paul reminds us that the Lord calls us to be free — free from law and free from sin and free to serve each other in love (Galatians 5:1-6). We are to lovingly serve all people, especially those with whom we share Jesus (Galatians 6:10).
