Ryan and I were blessed with parents who showed us how to love others by serving! When we wrote down all the projects we remembered seeing our parents volunteer/serve with our list was estonishing... Truthfully, I don't think we even had half of them....
Teaching kids to be active servants is so important. By serving and loving others you get a glimpse of God's love. We find it crucial to teach our kids not to except or expect payment for every thing they do... money has no fulfillment in the end.
Ryan and I love serving and thankful we were raised with this kind of heart. We also are blessed to have so many around us with this heart also!
This is what God says about serving! Have a great week and find one way to serve another person this week.... Get your kids involved! We made dinner for a loved one...
1 Peter 4:10-10
10 As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: 11 whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.
13 For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. 14 For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.”
