1 John 3:17 NLT
If someone has enough money to live well and sees a brother or sister in need but shows no compassion—how can God’s love be in that person?
That is a tough verse especially when the people around us, and maybe even some of us, have the gift of giving excuses. I am too busy. I don’t have enough money. I don’t understand. They have issues. I am not like them.
Seeing people in need ought to make us have a heart of compassion that finds ways to serve others. One of the things we have the ability to do is be part of the ministries in our area and at our church. It is such an honor to work with a great group of people at The Community Fellowship that love to serve.
With back2school ahead of us this week, there is a place for everyone to serve. There are also things that you can provide that will make the event that much better. Find a place to serve here or somewhere.
1 Peter 4:10 NLT
God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.
You are gifted. Yes, you have spiritual gifts that only God can give you to serve other people. We have also been given resources and blessings to share with other people. Those blessings can be any thing from money, to possessions, to our time in serving. It is what that we choice to do with what we have that makes a difference.
