“whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave—just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.” – Matthew 20:26-28
Serving others is one of the best ways we have to connect with people, deepen relationships, and love people authentically. When we serve others, we meet their needs, show them we genuinely care for them, and demonstrate that we don’t think or ourselves as “better” than them.
You can serve in organized service activities, like providing meals for the homeless or cleaning up a park, and you can serve in personal ways, like helping a neighbor fix their car or watching someone’s kids for a few hours.
In addition to meeting people’s needs, serving is also a great opportunity to connect with new people and deepen relationships. This may be with the people you are serving or with people who are serving alongside you.
Today: Think about some ways you can serve others in the coming weeks.
