My One Word: Serve
Intentional, giver, compassionate, generous – these were all on my list but as I looked to scripture, I read Phil. 2:3-5. “do nothing out vain conceit…consider others better than yourselves”….but how? I love my family dearly but how often do I serve because I want to, not because I have to? And what about my commitments? I feel like my heart isn’t always in the right place when I serve them. Sometimes I do it begrudgingly, not with complete joy. Often I am complaining in my mind and focusing on my needs, my wants and why I’m not getting to do what I want because I have to….. You fill in the blank! So I want to serve my family, my church, my commitments with joy and humility but first I need to serve God completely in order to serve as He would have me to do. So I look forward with anticipation and nervousness as to how I will SERVE in 2013!
