Serving Others // Read 1 Peter 4:10-11, Mark 10: 44-45
Out of our love and reverence for you, Lord, help us to serve others faithfully. We thank you that you came not to be served, but to serve. Help us to follow your example of being a servant. Open our eyes to see the opportunities you offer to us each day, and help us to not neglect doing good. Amen.
1 Peter 4:10-11
10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.
11 If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.
Mark 10: 44-45
44 and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all.
45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
