4 till B2S


They share freely and give generously to those in need. Their good deeds will be remembered forever. They will have influence and honor.

Here we are.  It is 4 till B2S.  What is about to take place is one of those times when I cannot contain myself.  We get to serve.  The overflow really is incredible.

Some of the people we are going to help could take care of this on there own, but some of these would not be able to buy shoes or school supplies.  It is those people that I am grateful to be able to serve the most.  To help someone who cannot return the help is a great deal.

Yet it is important to not look at these two different groups differently.  As the old song says “the ground is level at the foot of the cross.”  God loves everyone no matter who they are or what they have.  Wait.  Everyone including you and including me needs the same love, same grace and same gifting from our God.

What is ahead for you?  How will you serve?  Can you look at those you serve with genuine humility and serving no matter the circumstances?  It really is a big deal.

Because it is 4 till B2S I challenge us to take time to pray that God allows us to serve well and to transfer our worth and even purpose from our heart to the hearts of those we are blessed to serve!

Mark 10:45  NLT
For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many.


Pray for our back2school outreach that begins on Friday.
