He Came to Serve…

Standard

Is any form of service to low for the Lord? There are all kinds of ways to serve the Lord, by teaching, praying, helping. Jesus Christ came not to be served, but to serve. When he knelt down and put aside his clothing, he washed the disciples feet. He did not find this kind of service to low for Him. How can I say that something is too low for me? The job of caring for children is not glamorous… I am glad to do it. My heart sings with joy each time they hug me. More importantly, when they tell me about the Lord and what He has done for them, then I know that God has given me the best. It would be foolish for me to ask if there is something more important He could have me do right now. And yet, I am often plaqued with doubts about my purpose in life. I see so many other women with children out there working, and I have to admit that it makes me feel inadequate some how. Should I find some kind of job?  What other occupation in this world is more honorable than being a mother? Do not doubt your calling in your home. The Lord would never waste your time. He is your Master, and you His servant. If He could come and serve, how can I not serve also?
