Do you wake up thinking what you’re going to do today for yourselves,? Or do you wake up thinking, what you’re going to do today to help someone else? When you pray, are you praying for others, or are you praying solely for yourself ?
God created us and has equipped us to serve Him. He made us, we didn’t make ourselves. Our strengths and talents are from God so that we can do His will, not our own. We are called by God to serve, not to be served.
When we help others, we are serving God. When we give of ourselves, we are serving God. When we serve with the right intent, a glad heart, we receive the blessings of God. He rewards us.
Think more about others, help others, and let God lift you up, and receive the blessings of God.
