HELP OTHERS

I have watched this video so many times.  It such a heartwarming story of a guy who thinks of others first.  From a plant to a sweet little girl and all in between… He is NOT selfish.  He is NOT self-centered.  He is a servant.  He is blessed.

I want to help others.  I want others needs to come before mine.  I am blessed…I want to bless others.

Please watch the video.

Be a SERVANT

When we think of the word SERVANT, most of the time a negative connotation goes along with it.  There are many words that are used in it’s place:  minion, lackey, attendant, maid…slave.   See, negative.

As a student council advisor, I try my best to encourage the ones involved that being a leader means serving others.  The council is not just about painting signs or having meetings.  It’s about serving others.

This is the same in life… We are not here to just live.  We are here to live for others.  We are here to serve.  We are here to make this life better for everyone, not just for #1.  We are to put others before us.

As a servant, we are to love others as God loves us.  We are not #1.  We are #3, or 4…or 5 …or ….  you get it?  God, of course, should be our #1.  THEN, all will fall into the place they need to be.  Others should be next #2, 3, 4, so on.

I’m not saying you shouldn’t take care of yourself, but when you help others, you help yourself.   When you serve others, you serve yourself.   God knows your heart.  He knows your intentions and your service.  He knows.

This helps explain:

Be a servant.

Tomorrow is MLK, Jr. National Day of Service.  I’m excited to read about all the things that people do to serve others on this day that has been inspired by the life of Mr. King.

I want to end the blog today with a great Martin Luther King, Jr. quote.  

“LIFE’S MOST PERSISTENT AND URGENT QUESTION IS:

WHAT ARE YOU DOING FOR OTHERS?”

How’s your heart?

20121202-190043.jpg

As in water face reflects face,
so the heart of man reflects the man.
Prov. 27: 19

How’s your heart? Are you a servant to others? Do you spew hate all around or is your heart full of love for mankind? Your heart is reflected and projected to others. Your actions show your heart.

And we are supposed to love through ACTIONS and truth:

My little children, let us not love in word or in tongue, but in deed and in truth. (I John 3:18 NKJV)

This time of the year brings many opportunities for us all to give to, and serve others. To do so should make your heart happy and keep it full of love. I did not say pride–do not become prideful and boast of the things you do for others. Give praise and glory to God, because only through Him are we all able to do the things we do–and when others see you do good things, may HE be praised!

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven. (Matthew 5:16 NKJV)

So, how’s your heart?
